Just desserts after five-year free lunch

For Anthony Armatys, a job with communications company Avaya was the best job he never took. The Illinois man has pleaded guilty to theft by deception after he failed to report that Avaya, based in Basking Ridge, had deposited $469,000 worth of pay into his checking account, despite the fact that he never put in a day’s work for the company. 

Armatys accepted a job with Avaya in 2002, but changed his mind and withdrew the application before his start day. But the firm had already entered Armatys into the payroll system, and for five years Avaya deposited checks into his bank account. In fact, Armatys participated in the company’s retirement plan, making contributions to an account administered by Fidelity Investments.
 
When he called Fidelity to arrange a withdrawal, he identified himself as an Avaya employee. That prompted an 11-month investigation that led to Armatys’ arrest and his subsequent guilty plea in New Jersey Superior Court.
