For Anthony Armatys, a job with communications firm Avaya was the best job he never took. As we first told you last year, Armatys accepted a job with Avaya in 2002, but changed his mind before the start date. But the company had already entered Armatys into its payroll system, and for five years deposited checks into his bank account. Total deposits: $469,000. Armatys even participated in the company’s retirement plan. He got caught last year when he tried to make a retirement-plan withdrawal.

Latest news: The Illinois man recently pleaded guilty to theft by deception. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 8.
