Nice Work...

...If you don't have to do it. This has to be one of the best scams yet done:

A French tax official cheated the government out of 600,000 euros ($820,000) by creating a phantom identity as a university professor and claiming a salary for some 15 years, the government said Monday.

But didn't anyone at the university that was paying the salary note that he wasn't taking any classes, wasn't publishing any research?

Err, people who ask that obviously don't know much about academia.
