Bureau Releases Letters In NM Embezzlement Cases

Nov 18, 2013

The Farmington Convention and Visitors Bureau has released a form letter that was sent to people believed to have benefited from an embezzlement scandal involving the bureau's now-dead former director.

The bureau mailed the letters in early August as an effort to recover money from those who may have unknowingly benefited. It assured them their names would not be made public.

The letter was obtained by The Daily Times through a public records request. The recipients' names and addresses were blacked out.

The newspaper reports that so far, the bureau's campaign has netted $1,300 from a single donor.

The bureau's former director, Debbie Dusenberry, killed herself in Arizona last year. She was accused of embezzling more than $480,000 from the bureau between 2006 and 2012.
