For what it’s worth, this is a common type of crime. Fake invoices have been used for years to bilk employers out of monies. The issue that makes this most amazing is that the criminal is an IT manager, who should have known that Microsoft Word stores information that would lead right back to him. This one has thrown his entire career away, and will likely wind up making pennies for the rest of his life.

A now-former senior IT exec has admitted conning his employer out of $6m – by setting up a fake tech services biz that billed his bosses for bogus services.
