No, I'm sure it's under Dr. Talwar's name. She has a lot of assets in her house too. She was planning on selling the assets soon. Even if it's a Lake Forrest garage sale or Criag's List. Now that her bankruptcy is over she can use her money again.

I worked at DB Gurnee for a few months. I had more contact with Karuna then I'd wish on anyone. Crazy doesn't even come close to describing her. I started noticing things going wrong a few weeks before I quit. Members not getting orders, money disappearing,Karuna buying Pranda, while employees were struggling to get paid. I started emailing members, letting them know what was up. One member I wrote, I said "If you don't believe me, ask for a refund" they did and it didn't happen. Karuna had embezzled over half a million dollars in just three months. The day I quit, I sent letters to the president and vice president of Direct Buy. Along with copies of everything I could. I informed them of the shredding of documents, the forging of signatures, the shuffles of checks from members for goods, to Karuna personal accounts. EVERYTHING. Of course she blamed all of it on her husband and her assistant Laura. It still makes me sick, what she did to hard working, honest people. I'll be happy to answer questions if anyone still has some. Just know, she was not alone, her assistant Laura Murdie, employees Erin McCormack, Lisa Miller, they knew everything. I watched Lisa Miller FORGE signatures on orders. I don't know how Karuna managed to NOT go to jail.

Whistle Blower,
You didn't whistle blow anything about Karuna that no one did not already know. Everyone knows she embezzled money and blamed it on everyone but herself. That's old news!
Considering you are naming me, Erin McCormack, in the above message, I would like to know what I knew that you obviously didn't know, because you seem to know a lot!!
I would like to know if you got paid the last two months of you working for Karuna, because I sure the HELL did not.
I would like to know what document I forged because I sure the HELL do not know.
Additionally, since you are willing to put my name in your post, why don't you name your name or are you too cowardly to do so?!
Please explain what you mean by Laura, Lisa and I had something to do with what Karuna was doing! Did I get anything from what Karuna did?? NO! NO ONE DID!
If you are going to sit behind your computer and make accusations you better back it, because if you don't you have another thing coming.
Like you stated above if anyone has questions you will answer them, so please answer my questions, I have some! If anyone else would like to know the truth, I will be happy to answer them, as I know more then this faceless coward who as you stated only worked at DirectBuy for a FEW MONTHS!

Just got some intereting (if not horrorific news) Karuna is pregnant!!! Due next month. A friend recieved a baby shower invite!!! God help this baby!! Sadly I'm conviced it's Karuna's way of securing a finacial future for herself through her husband......18 years of child support, plus whatever sh is getting from Suku for Blake. I wonder how long she will stay with Derek after the baby comes & she can get money for nothing.....Sad.......

There aren't too many storage units in the Waukegan area. My guess is she has them in the indoor storage units on Green Bay road. Everything is kept at a controlled temperature with the humidity also being controlled. There is a large white lady that works in there that would probably tell you if she saw her in there. Just bring a photo.:D

Also there is another storage unit very close to DB. Right on Washington. It could also be there as I think going East on washington turns into Waukegan. Good LUCK.

So wait a minute, she was PREGNANT when she was busted for drunk driving?? Wow! Derek Debe is an idiot!! He must be completely blind or incredibly stupid. I say both. What man would marry a woman who if all you need to do is a Google search an only HORRIFIC things show up? Really Derek? All his REAL friends deserted him and his family wants to have nothing to do with him because of her. When is enough, enough? Karuna is a self serving, drunken bitch!!

State's attorney office tried to mail her notice, but of course no response. It's in Lake County Sheriff's office now to hand deliver to her.
How wrong for such a selfish, heartless person to be having another baby just for money.. Pregnant and drinking- would you have expected anything different? She cares about nobody but herself, Derek - feeling sorry for you bud! If you really, really knew her before you got married, now you and your money are STUCK with her....Sorry!
Don't feel sorry for him! He knew what he was getting into and he went willingly. It's so sad because he really is such a nice guy but what idiot doesn't bother to Google someone they're dating or even thinking of marrying!? He's nice. Nice and stupid. If she dumps his ass and moves on the the next chump I'll laugh hysterically. Hopefully she will have her baby in JAIL!!

To what is the big deal........just go back & read the 3 pages prior to this.....

The bottom line is, some people are nefarious & schemers by nature. They are looking to take advantage of everyone & anyone. Some people work hard and dthe right thing....Karuna is so far from that that people are horrified that someone who is so awful appears to constantly have fruits of labor she hasn't worked for or earned.

That's the big deal.......

I did read it. It seemed 99% of the complaints were former employees. I don't understand why people chose to continue working for her after they knew what type of person she was. I am not defending her, just wondering.

Its kind of like "knowing"- having associated with an infamous serial-pathological person of shame! Its not that anyone here "likes it", but just imagine all the people who were somehow linked with the likes of a well known politician or killer- somewhat along those lines.
