Paid for not showing up
Are you kidding me?? This is a job I would like to have. No, LOVE to have! But, however, I would think once or twice or three times BEFORE ordering any kind of equipment from Avaya. But then again, how stupid was Armatys to try and withdraw money from a 401k?? As my 3rd grade teacher would say, “e- gads and little fishes.” (I would say, fuggin’ asshole.)
Anthony Armatys is facing up to six years in prison for his dumb move. But he’s not the only dummy in this story. Ammatys accepted a job in 2002 with telecom equipment maker Avaya but then changed his mind before he started. He was already in the payroll system however, and the company started depositing his six-figure salary into his checking account.
For five years, Armatys did not notify Avaya of its error, but his attempt to make an early withdrawal from his 401(k) prompted an investigation that led to his arrest In October Armatys pleaded guilty to theft and was ordered to repay the $470,995.53 in compensation he received. He faces full sentencing in January.
