Paid for Not Showing Up

Anthony Armatys is facing up to six years in prison for his dumb move. But he's not the only dummy in this story.

Armatys 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.

As cool as that would be, should have known they would notice the error and want there money back.

On the other hand, how can they call it theft when they put the money into his account? He didn't still it. He just didn't give it back.
