business news in context, analysis with attitude

…with brief, occasional, italicized and sometimes gratuitous commentary…

CNN reports on a 23-year-old man, Thomas Frudaker, who was arrested last week and charged with making fraudulent returns - to the tune of $1.3 million - at more than 1,000 Walmart stores around the country over the past 18 months. He was arrested when trying to do so in Yuma, Arizona, and charged immediately with six felony charges, “including two counts of theft, two counts of fraudulent schemes and two counts of criminal damage.”

Think about that. This guy visited almost 25 percent of the Walmart stores in the US in less than two years. I wonder how many Walmart executives did that. They ought to go after him with the full force of the law, but they may want to consider pulling an Alexander Mundy with him, and use Frudaker as an invaluable resource.
