Micro Mart - - Google Fact Check -

To Amer­ica we go with news of a court ap­pear­ance for a man in Cal­i­for­nia who ad­mit­ted to steal­ing $4.8m from his place of work.

Kevin Lee Co worked in ac­counts for the heavy-equip­ment com­pany Holt and dur­ing 2008 to 2015 it turns out that he em­bez­zled the mil­lions of dol­lars. He ad­mit­ted dur­ing a court ap­pear­ance that he had spent the funds on plas­tic surgery, lux­ury cars, a golf club mem­ber­ship… and $1m on mo­bile MMO strat­egy game Game of War.

You’ll know about the game if you haven’t played it your­self as it’s ben­e­fit­ted from a high-pro­file pro­mo­tional cam­paign star­ring model Kate Up­ton and it hap­pens to be one of the big­gest mo­bile ti­tles around. Its rev­enue would have been boosted by this chap’s se­ri­ous spend­ing, of course, and he now faces pos­si­ble jail time for his sins.
