Aimee Bock, who is 41 years old, started and runs a nonprofit group in Minnesota called Feeding Our Future. This group works with the Federal Child Nutrition Program.
In a press release on September 20, 2022, the U.S. Department of Justice said that she was accused in a federal indictment of “overseeing a massive fraud scheme carried out by sites under Feeding Our Future’s sponsorship.”
Aimee Marine Bock is her full name. She was a teacher before. Online records show that she lives in Minnesota, in the city of St. Paul.
According to the Department of Justice, “Feeding Our Future went from getting and spending about $3.4 million in government money in 2019 to getting and spending nearly $200 million in 2021.”
The DOJ says that Bock was one of 47 people charged in a $250 million fraud scheme that “misused a federally funded program to feed children during the COVID-19 outbreak.”
Is Amiee Bock’s boyfriend also on the list of suspects?
People know that Amiee Bock’s boyfriend is Empress Malcolm Watson Jr. He is said to have thrown away tens of thousands of dollars on expensive cars and trendy items with the money she got by lying. He is not named in the document that was sent to the court, though.
He is the owner of Watson’s Bail Bonds, LLC, International Recovery Agency, and the Lead Fugitive Recovery Agent there.
Court documents say that Bock stole $600,000 from the federal government by using a fake company that was run by her boyfriend, Empress Malcolm Watson Jr.
Then, he spent $9,000 at Caesar’s Palace, $6,700 at Gucci, and $3,500 at Louis Vuitton. Bock is also accused of giving her boyfriend a contract worth $600,000 to remodel Feeding Our Future’s 10,000-square-foot office.
But he is not involved in the legal process.
