Phantom French professor $900,000 salary for 15 years

A French tax official cheated the government out of 600,000 euros ($900,000) by creating a phantom identity as a university professor and claiming a salary for some 15 years, the government has said.

Education Ministry officials uncovered the scam in June and began legal and disciplinary action immediately, Budget Minister Eric Woerth said in a statement.

He said he "desired action to be undertaken urgently to prevent a recurrence of an abuse of this kind."
