Dave, I'm with you - that's why I haven't said anything and I really don't want to.
Nan, my boss is the CFO, but since the guy is buying such a varied collection of stuff I don't think she'll realize that there's extra stuff on the invoices. And since the guy openly told my friend he's 'added' stuff onto the orders for himself, with no mention of paying the company back, I think it's a lot more likely this is just outright stealing. He's not getting us any deals either, just buying whatever he finds first regardless of the price.
Marie, I think it would be worse for me to snitch than to keep my mouth shut - there's no way for anyone to prove that I know about it so I really can't get in trouble for not speaking up.
Sue, I hadn't thought of an anonymous letter, but I think that could backfire too. This guy hangs out a lot with a good friend of mine, the one who told me about this, so I think 'anonymous' would be blamed on him and then HE might get in trouble!
I think I'm mostly venting here - I really don't think there's anything for me to do that doesn't put me at risk for losing my job at the worst or being labeled a snitch at best. It's a no-win situation but it makes me so mad!
