Ex-lighting manager charged in $1.8M fraud targeting QVC

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A man who spent several years as the lighting manager for online and TV shopping network QVC Inc. has been charged with bilking the company for more than $1.8 million.

Defense attorneys for 58-year-old Douglas Rae, of Bethlehem, didn't immediately return calls for comment Friday on the charges announced by federal prosecutors in Philadelphia.

They say Rae stole the money from West Chester, Pennsylvania-based QVC by submitting bogus invoices from two lighting companies he controlled between 2006 and 2013.

Rae allegedly funneled phony invoices to QVC through two other people who are also charged and allegedly shared in the proceeds.

QVC says in a statement that it takes "reports of unethical or unlawful business conduct on the part of our employees very seriously" and is cooperating with investigators
