School falls victim to custodian scheme

Harry S. Truman High School in Co-Op City had been doling out payments to custodians who did not work in the building, according to the special schools investigator.

The head custodian was writing out checks to five employees who produced work for him in other buildings, and oftentimes these workers were not even inside the high school. One custodian was paid for more than 3,000 hours, even thought he was not in the high school during those times.

The scheme cheated the Department of Education out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, according to reports.

All custodians involved will be fired. (NY1)
