Submission + - Verizon Tech steals $4.5 million by making false w (ajc.com) 1

McGruber writes: Michael Baker, a 62-year-old man from Ball Ground, Georgia, was recently arrested and charged with multiple counts of fraud.

As a network engineer at the southeastern regional headquarters of Verizon Wireless, Baker allegedly submitted hundreds of fraudulent service requests to Cisco. According to prosecutors, "The service requests were fraudulent in that no parts needed to be replaced, and instead of placing the replacement parts into service in Verizon Wireless network, Baxter simply took them home and sold them to third-party re-sellers for his own profit."
