Ex employee used business card for $4,000 in personal expenses

  • Follow Crime & courts

An Augusta business owner said a former employee used the company credit card to charge almost $4,000 for personal expenses, a Richmond County Sheriff’s report said.

At 3 p.m. Friday, Stephen Hoehle, 55, owner of Steve’s Automotive at 1001 Alexander Drive, told investigators that an ex-employee had charged $3,945 over the last few months on his business credit card for personal expenses, including iTunes, T-Mobile and Iron Guard Storage.

The report said Hoehle said he had caught the ex-employee using his card to pay personal bills before, but the man claimed that he had used the card by accident.

Mis-TAKEN-ly used

$3,945 is a lot of accidental mistakes

$1 per iTune,
$75 p/m - T-Mobile,

The Personal purchases must be "veryyyy interestingggg" as Peter Lorre would say .

But now I am wondering what is being stored at the Iron Guard Storage facility... Missing auto parts?

You can't trust everyone with corporate cards
Unpublished

but otherwise you would be discriminating. It does save some money and administration costs. But everyone is not responsible. They are not responsible in their own business.

Profiling unreliable employees. Then its PC, EOE, GADOL, DOJ. Just as ARC found it couldn't trust commissioners with gasoline cards which they used to fill all of their relatives gas tanks. Another social engineering myth. Giving more responsibility will engender a higher level of personal responsibility.
