 New lawsuit against ex-Buncombe manager alleges fraudulent money moves

Former Buncombe County manager Wanda Greene, left, and son, Michael Greene, separately leaving the federal courthouse in Asheville after pleading not guilty to wire fraud, conspiracy and embezzlement charges in 2018. Greene and her son Michael Greene are both defendants in a new lawsuit brought by Buncombe County alleging she has fraudulently transferring money to family for years.

ASHEVILLE – More than four years after former Buncombe County Manager Wanda Greene was indicted on embezzlement charges and nearly three years after she reported to federal prison in Fort Worth, Texas, she now is on the receiving end of another civil lawsuit from her former employers.

Buncombe County filed a complaint July 6 against 71-year-old Greene, her son, Michael Greene, 51, and daughter-in-law Celena Greene, claiming the three have colluded in fraudulent money transfers for years.

Greene is serving a five-year sentence after being convicted of two counts of federal program fraud, one count of making and subscribing a federal tax return and one count of receipt of kickbacks and bribes.

Michael Greene, once the county’s business intelligence manager, was sentenced to six months.
