The trial of former Systemax director Carl Fiorentino has been moved from New York to Florida, where he was based when the alleged bribery offences are claimed to have occurred. Fiorentino, a one-time president of subsidiary Tiger Direct, stands accused of pocketing more than $7m in kickbacks from component suppliers in Taiwan …
"This was after it found that he had "fraudulently" banked $400k in compensation from firms that traded with Systemax between 2006 and 2010. The federal agency also alleged that he had stolen $200k worth of company merchandise. He was forced to pay a $65k penalty."
So, he stole/scammed $600k and only had to pay back $65k with absolutely no jail time?
WOW! It pays to be a white-collar criminal!
I wonder how much I could get for all these staplers....
