Suspect in Provincetown Timeshare Bankruptcy Case Pleads Not Guilty

BARNSTABLE – The Eastham woman accused of embezzling more than $1.8 million from a Provincetown timeshare complex pleaded not guilty this week.

Donni Zoppi, 61, is scheduled to return to court on January 31. She is charged with larceny.

Zoppi was the office manager of the now-bankrupt Harbor Hill complex. Authorities allege Zoppi wrote herself checks from the timeshare’s bank account and used Harbor Bill’s debit card for personnel purchases. She is also accused of making ATM withdrawals from the Harbor Hill account and wiring money directly from Harbor Hill to her personal account.

The alleged activity happened from 2008 to 2015. During the same timeframe, authorities say Zoppi took lavish vacations, purchases a horse for her stepdaughter, bought club level seats at Gillette Stadium, and attended the Westminster Dog Show in New York City.

Harbor Hill declared bankruptcy in 2016 as a result of Zoppi’s alleged actions. The Town of Provincetown is currently trying to buy the property to use for affordable housing.

The Attorney General’s Office spearheaded the investigation into Zoppi.
