FUEL CARD MISUSE
We initiated a joint investigation with the Amtrak Police Department and the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Office of Inspector General into allegations that an Amtrak Assistant Track Supervisor misused his two assigned GSA fuel cards to conduct fraudulent transactions. The investigation disclosed that, from May 24, 2015, to July 28, 2015, these two fuel cards were used to conduct 88 fraudulent transactions totaling approximately $5,300. The employee admitted to providing the two fuel cards to a non-Amtrak employee to purchase fuel for non-Amtrak vehicles at local gas stations in exchange for cash used to purchase illegal drugs for both of them. On February 3, 2017, the employee resigned from his position with Amtrak and is ineligible for rehire.
