#WOTD: Embezzle

Hi, Fellas! How do you do along this week?

In this session, I would like to share some information about “embezzle.” Have you heard about this word?

“Embezzle” is adopted from the word “embesiller” Anglo-French, which means “to make a way with.” According to Merriam Webster Dictionary, this word acts as a verb with a meaning “to steal money you’ve been trusted with.”

In my view, this word refers the ones who work in finance division that steal the company’s or organizations’s fund.

There are some related words to “embezzle,” such as “misappropriate,” “misuse,” “preempt,” “peculate,” etc. Lastly, here are some examples of sentences that contains embezzle:
1. “She was arrested from emblezzing his company’s.”
2. “He’s aware that his boss embezzle the company’s money, but he pretends to not know about it.”
