WorldCom Made Up Execs Also

Well, this is interesting. Besides the various other problems WorldCom is having for making up money on their financial statements, it turns out they may have been making up executives as well. That’s right. VP’s out of thin air. WorldCom customer service people would keep people on hold for hours, laughing at them all the way, and then have them send complaints to a VP of Customer Service, named Thomas Barton, who no one can seem to find. “Barton” occasionally sent letters to upset customers, but other than that no one seems able to prove he exists.
