A woman with one O level defrauded Reading-based software company Borland International UK of almost £90,000 and was only found out because of a misplaced digit. Ruther Ferraro, who lied on her CV to obtain the £64,500-a-year senior accountancy job, was jailed for 30 months for her crimes. The Register is a tad surprised that Borland (now called Inprise) had that much money for her to steal. Nonetheless, the compay's misfortune should be a lesson to everyone: never employ an accountant who is as highly qualified as Ms Ferraro, it can only lead to trouble. ®
