To summarize, the Court ordered in November 2011 that Bank of America be paid $4,403.52 by Alexandria Thompson. The amount is a pittance compared to the $1.3 million judgement relating to the fraud/embezzlement she committed in New Hampshire. Known locally in Venice as Alex Thompson, this career criminal is involved in other cases in the California Superior Court system — details and further analysis of this and those other cases will be published upon review.

The PDF file of June 23, 2004, lists the aliases of Amie Marie Thompson as Amie M. Thompson, Alexandria Thompson, and Amiendthia Thompson.

She was invited to Koreatown by the Wilshire Center Business Improvement District, whose operations director is Michael P. Russell, a WC-K Neighborhood Council Board Member & co-chair of the LAPD Olympic Division C-PAB.

Initial details available about the case in New Hampshire:

Justin Spencer, bandleader of Recycled Percussion, won a $1.3 million judgment against his former business partner Alexandria Thompson, who had accused him of theft and identity fraud while Spencer’s group was competing on the NBC television show America’s Got Talent… Spencer also had all criminal charges against him dropped related to theft and identity fraud allegations.

Alexandria Thompson filed a lawsuit against Spencer just as Recycled Percussion was at the height of being judged on the television show. News about his being investigated by police for fraud was made public just as the percussion group competed for the show’s $1 million prize. Thompson had had no dealings with the band for about a year — when she saw them on the brink of fame on America’s Got Talent, she came out of nowhere to file the lawsuit.

Ultimately, Judge Kenneth Brown found that Alexandria Thompson was the one actually stealing from Recycled Percussion’s parent company. A team of private investigators hired by Justin Spencer’s lawyers discovered that Thompson was convicted of embezzling roughly $65,000 from a Texas photographer prior to her association with the band.

The court in New Hampshire concluded that Thompson spent more than $50,000 on herself using the company’s debit card between 2007 and 2008. She also cost them close to $300,000 due to lost revenue and other expenses, according to Court documents. Their legal expenses of over $280,000 are also her responsibility.

Further, Thompson told the band she held a degree from a college in Maryland, but there is no record of her there, according to the school.

She accessed their website and posted a pornographic picture on it. The New Hampshire court ordered her to remove it.

Thompson, who has more than five aliases, came to access Recycled Percussion’s finances while still under a Texas court order that prohibited her from having any involvement in the finances of any company.
