  1. Shelby “Anna” McCann, a former controller of CardPlayer Magazine, was indicted on two dozen felony counts stemming from an accusation that she stole more than $1 million from the longtime poker publication. She faces 23 counts of theft and one count of unlawful acts regarding computers. According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, McCann allegedly began stealing from the organization almost immediately after they hired her, just a few months after Black Friday occurred, in September 2011. Chief Deputy District Attorney Jay P. Raman said that McCann abused her position by writing checks to herself, increased her own salary without permission and paid off personal debt with corporate funds. Over the course of her five-year employment with Card Player, the amount disputed is over $1.1 million. According to McCann’s own LinkedIn page, her duties at CardPlayer included “control of all incoming/outgoing revenue” as well as “Daily operations management…including all financials, document retention, acquisitions, human resources, compliance, international and banking.” CardPlayer was founded in 1988 and purchased by Barry and Allyn Jaffrey Shulman in 1998. Aside from the magazine, the Shulman's have a long history in the game of poker including both having won World Series of Poker bracelets. Allyn Jaffrey Shulman won the 2012 WSOP Seniors Event and Barry Shulman was victorious in the 2009 WSOP Europe Main Event. CardPlayer President and editor, Jeff Shulman, was also a member of the 2009 November Nine. Allyn Shulman, who reportedly testified at the grand jury trial, spoke with David Ferrara of the LVRJ in a telephone interview. “All of a sudden there was no money to pay the bills,” Shulman said. “This made us start thinking: What the heck is going on?” McCann, who uses the first name Anna in her online profiles, has a number of crowdfunding pages associated with her name. One, dedicated to a possible adoption by McCann and her husband Benjamin, was allegedly used to funnel up to $22,000. McCann also has a legal defense GoFundMe page started by her husband that, in the description, asserts that the charges are “absurd.” The description goes on to say: “Without giving too much detail, they reported to police that every dime she made there over a base $37k/year salary was fraudulent and unauthorized. Anna had worked for 2 law firms in CA in the capacity as a controller/ Accountant before this employer. She was bonded in both CA and NV. “This is vindictive retaliation and I am fully motivated to defend Anna and punish the individuals responsible for inflicting this type of harm to her and our family. “But I need help. This is entertainment to her accusers and they have deep pockets. My initial goal is to cover her bail bond and to provide a retainer to a defense attorney. “ “Anna’s Legal Defense Fund” GoFundMe currently has $468 of its $20,000 goal reached.
