An MTA worker in New York got fired several years ago, but no one ever told payroll, so 47-year-old Ronald Berry kept showing up on payday to get his check for FOUR YEARS. He collected $250,000 during that span!
When he went in last Thursday to get his check, cops arrested him. Ronald says he didn't think he was doing anything wrong. He claims he went on sick leave for high blood pressure and asthma and he thought the paychecks were legit.
However his pay stubs listed his hours, which he knew he didn't work, but he claims no one ever told him he was fired. And it's the MTA's fault, not his.
