Diary of a Bad, Bad Bookkeeper (Day 30) – The Double Payday Scam

Dear Diary,

Today was payday – the second since I’ve been here.  I figured it was about time to test the Double Payday Scam – to see if my boss would actually catch me.

So, I started the day by doing the Payroll.  Just like two weeks ago, I created and took all of the paychecks to the boss to sign.  He signed them, with only the occasional request to see a corresponding timecard…then he signed mine without question.

I took the checks

    Unbelievably useful posting. Myself & my mother have been getting ready to try and do a little study concerning that. We bought a useful guide on that issue via our neighborhood library and almost all publications are not as descriptive as your content. I’m certainly quite grateful to see such information which I had been looking for a very long time.

  2. Several with the factors associated with this blog post are usually beneficial nonetheless had me personally wanting to know, did they seriously imply that? One stage I have acquired to say is your writing experience are very good and I’ll be returning back again for any brand-new blog publish you arrive up with, you may probably possess a brand-new supporter. I book marked your blog for reference.

  3. I always worked in low-risk jobs. That way, if something went wrong at work, the damages to anyone would be small. But, I lost my career job. Unable to find a new job, I applied for many hundreds of jobs in 6 counties….online, in person, by fax, by phone, at Work Source, through the newspaper, cold-calling, cold-resume mailing, using staffing agencies, etc… I finally got an offer at a small business. It was advertised as “office assistant”. Of course, I accepted the job. It turned out to bookkeeping. I have huge reservations about working with valuables because if something goes wrong at work, it would be a big deal. In the past, I have been too naive and trusting, so I want to make sure no thief uses my role as bookkeeper to “set me up” like a Patsy, to take their fall. Your website is helping me know how to demonstrate rightful behavior, and how to spot any deviousness in others. I know most people are trustworthy, but this job puts me in a vulnerable position. Hopefully I’ll get out of this job as soon as I put in some stable time and find a less risky job. Thanks for your words of wisdom. I’m really looking forward to your educational article so I can protect my job, myself, and the business.
