Not just fired but he should go to jail for fraud.

Wow... What a score... No dissent on this one.

Are the terminations he announced few weeks ago still on?

Funny thing, the new board members represent the side that wants the company chopped and sold, so the end is even closer than it was a week ago.

Back in 1940, only 20 percent of college students admitted to cheating during their academic careers. Today, that number has increased to a range of 75%-98%.

Cheating Statistics
Cheating typically begins in middle school
Nine out of ten middle schoolers admit to copying someone else's homework; two-thirds say they have cheated on exams
Cheating most often occurs in science and math classes
75%-98% percent of college students surveyed each year admit to cheating at some time in their academic careers
The college students who are most likely to cheat are engineering and business majors

This guy is pathetic. He got away with it so long at Ebay and who knows how many other places....he thought he would never get caught.

The moronic thing is that it wouldn't have mattered if he left it off his resume when he got hired but he just got caught up in the lie.

What an idiot. This guy should never get employed again.

People get away with this stuff all the time:

James R. Baughman

http://www.nytimes.com/2001/03/05/busine...

- Superintendent of the San Jose school district in the early 1990s. Faked a PhD from Stanford in his resume (he never even attended Stanford.) This was front-page news in the San Jose newspapers of the time.

- Also, convicted of felony embezzlement while he was a high-school principal, did time in prison.

...and then, a few years later, hired as a director at Lucent technologies, in San Jose!

You folks realize the guy that reported the CEO doctored his resume is the same guy that use to run ZBest Carpet Cleaning...You know the guy that went to jail for fraud....Yup....full circle.

FLU: You're speaking of Barry Minkow. And, yeah, the fraudster turned "do-gooder" who assisted the FBI in ferreting out fraud, got zapped last year for running down a game on Lennar: http://articles.latimes.com/2011/jul/22/...

See, we do talk about real estate! Lennar is a homebuilder.

Never mind on Minkow... Wasn't the same due that outed Yahoo CEO...

I got Loeb and Minkow mixed up...Nevermind. I was reading an article really quickly about Minkow in between, and thought he was the same dude. But turns out it was Loeb...
