Woman pleads guilty to embezzling nearly $2M from Provincetown timeshare

PROVINCETOWN, Mass. — An Eastham woman will spend the next two to three years in prison for embezzling nearly two-million dollars from the Harbor Hill timeshare resort in Provincetown, according to Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey.

Donna Zoppi, 63, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of larceny over $250.

The attorney general alleged Zoppi, who was Harbor Hill's officer manager, embezzled more than $1.8 million between 2008 and 2015 by writing herself checks from the Harbor Hill account, using the Harbor Hill debit card for personal expenses, making ATM withdrawals from the Harbor Hill account and wiring money directly from the Harbor Hill account to her personal account.

During the same timeframe, Zoppi took lavish vacations, bought a horse for her stepdaughter, bought club level seats at Gillette Stadium and attended the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City, the attorney general said.

Harbor Hill declared bankruptcy in 2016 as a result of Zoppi's actions, the attorney general added.

Healey's office began an investigation into Zoppi after getting calls through the office's consumer hotline.
