P-Cards are always a love/hate topic. Some people swear by them as an easier-than-easy way to purchase goods and services without a lot of paperwork and process. Others despise them as a way to bypass the entire purchasing process. And as an invitation for fraudulent use. Witness this gem:
In this case, a worker with the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority allegedly racked up a total of $12,600 in fraudulent charges for things like Toshiba DVD players, sound systems, a Dirt Devil steam cleaner, a Dell computer and cell phones, all of which later turned up in a police search of her house.
