Former Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Employee Embezzled Over $1 Million Ordering Computer Printer Toner

Posted Dec 03 2010 12:42pm

Now that is a lot of ink and toner and somewhat makes a statement as to how much ink and toner a facility uses, so large that it took a year to figure out this person had image ordered so much extra!

The article didn’t say what he did with the ink and obviously he must have had a market for it somewhere to sell as that kind of stuff happens all over the place today.  Its amazing though that someone didn’t catch this sooner and the fact that it went on for about a year and it was not product used by the hospital to boot.  BD 

NEW YORK (AP) — A former Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center worker embezzled more than $1 million from the renowned cancer hospital by ordering computer printer toner and stealing it, prosecutors said.

Receiving clerk Marque Gumbs ordered $1.2 million worth of unneeded toner on the hospital’s tab between October 2009 and this August, sometimes buying toner that wasn’t even compatible with the computers at the outpatient center where he worked, a court complaint says.

He had delivery drivers meet him on the street to hand over the supplies, and he was seen on surveillance video taking the shipments to an area where they didn’t belong, the complaint said.
