Doing it wrong

The fake invoices tend to get noticed sooner or later. Instead, direct real purchasing and contracts to a company you control, which resells products and subcontracts the work. All at a healthy markup for profit, of course. Sure, the company could have spent less elsewhere, but it's hard to make that into a case for fraud.
