NEW ORLEANS – A New Orleans resident is being sued over an alleged embezzlement scheme that allegedly resulted in the loss of $500,000.

Fatmah Hamdan filed suit against Tarek “Sam” Kahok in the Orleans Parish Civil District Court on Dec. 6, 2013.

Hamdan alleges that Tahok was a manager at Wagner Chef LLC and B-Xpress Louisa LLC, from late 2010 through December 2012, during which time he allegedly embezzled approximately $500,000., the suit claims.

Hamdan claims Kahok had employees leave cash in a paper bag rather than deposit in Brinks safe for pick up. Additionaly, the suit claims Kahok was using payouts to take cash, using money orders to pay salesmen and using money orders to pay his child support and pay girlfriends and women he dated. Hamdan asserts that to cover his alleged embezzlement, Kahok would also falsify daily income reports.

Hamdan is represented by Richard J. Richthofen Jr. of New Orleans-based Richthofen & Associates LLC.

Kahok is represented by attorney Robert G. Harvey Sr. of New Orleans.

The defendant has denied all charges.

Case is assigned to Division J Judge Paula A. Brown.

Case no. 2013-11573.
