Two former Georgia Institute of Technology employees were charged with theft in March for allegedly abusing state-issued credit cards, known as p-cards.

Donna Gamble faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 for allegedly using her p-card to buy $316,000 worth of personal items, including season football tickets. Michelle Harris faces felony racketeering charges for allegedly running up $173,000 in personal expenses on her university account.

At least 17 university employees have resigned, retired or been fired over p-card abuse. A recent audit revealed inadequate oversight of card use at the university.

Note: Most employees who abuse corporate accounts start small. Review company credit card charges monthly. Anything less, in today’s charge-now, pay-later culture, is courting disaster.
