A woman from Passaic County has admitted to her role in a scheme to steal more than $3.7 million from a New Jersey-based company where she worked.

On Tuesday, 50-year-old Amy Aldi, of Wayne, pleaded guilty to wire fraud in Newark federal court, U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger announced.

Federal prosecutors previously said from 2018 through 2020, Aldi abused her position as chief financial officer and director of operations at the company in Wyckoff — making over 200 unauthorized cash withdrawals.

The company, whose name was not disclosed, was involved in global wholesale distribution of business imaging products, such as copying machines, according to court paperwork.

Each of the withdrawals was for cash amounts of between $5,000 and $25,000 — all used for Aldi's personal benefit, prosecutors said.

Aldi then altered bank statements to try and cover up the massive theft, according to court documents.

When sentenced in January 2023, she will face up to 20 years in prison and a hefty fine.
