McGruber (1417641) writes "Michael Baker, a 62-year-old man from Ball Ground, Georgia, was recently arrested and charged with multiple counts of fraud.

As a network engineer at the southeastern regional headquarters of Verizon Wireless, Baker allegedly submitted hundreds of fraudulent service requests to Cisco.
