IT boss 'set up fake companies to charge his employers $2.4m'

You mention Canada. There was a low level official by the name of Paul Champagne in the Canadian Department of National Defence who, over a period of years, collected 10s of millions of dollars by persuading managers to sign off on documentation for mostly imaginary procurement activities. It seems that if anybody asked questions, he would tell them that they involved secret programs that he couldn't talk about.

I believe he received a 7 year sentence around 2008.
