Microsoft is facing staffing problems after 3 employees were caught embezzling money within a month and are now facing hard gaol time, reports TechFlash.

Former Microsoft employee Robert Curry has been sentenced to two years gaol time for stealing $460,000 from Microsoft. Curry will also have to pay the money back, probably from the income he gets from flipping burgers.

Curry worked as a Microsoft Manager in the online business development department, was qualified with an MBA from Yale and renumerated with a well-paid professional salary.

In April, he was arrested and charged for embezzling. Curry’s prosecutors argue his stealing spree begun in 2010 after becoming disillusioned from abusive managers.

According to the legal complaint, authorities claim Curry tricked vendor Pentad Solutions into billing Microsoft for audio equipment he claimed were for Xbox 360 promotional events. Not only did Curry keep the equipment, he also had the vendor bill Microsoft’s Bing search engine for downloads. It wasn’t until later that the vendor discovered the information was fabricated and that Curry was embezzling the money to businesses controlled by him and his friends.

Curry also tried to embezzle an additional $1.3 million before he was caught according to prosecutors.

He now joins the list of fellow Microsoft employees-turned-crooks, after being the third caught stealing money within the month. Early September saw Randal Ray Seal, and former analyst in the accounts payable department steal in excess of a million dollars. When caught, Seal was sentenced to two years prison. Manyvone Phanhsiry scored a 4 year sentence after she orchestrated a credit card scheme the identities of Microsoft interns.

 

Microsoft is hoping goal time will send a “strong deterrent message to make clear that stealing from this company will not be tolerated,” said Katheryn Kim Frierson, the company’s attorney.
