I think you can see where this is going. Corporate auditors have witnessed every expense account scam in the book, and they're wise to both the sneaky and stupid ways that undercompensated, overworked, disgruntled employees think. Tempting as it may be, it's just not worth the risk to your reputation, your livelihood and your criminal record to try to scam your company.
Sure, there's a chance you'll get away with pilfering a few hundred or even a few thousand bucks by fudging your expense report. Most likely, though, you won't. And if you thought finding a new job was hard now, try sending out your resume with corporate fraud on your record.
