Fraudsters trick their way into SA govt jobs paying $200k

FRAUDSTERS scammed their way into two high-paying State Government jobs in the department responsible for payroll, as the embarrassing scandal over botched hiring widens.

The Advertiser last week revealed that chief information officer Veronica Theriault had been sacked from her position in the Department of Premier and Cabinet and charged by police for deception and dishonesty, amid claims she used multiple identities and a fake CV to get the job.

It can now be revealed that the Government had already been duped twice before by applicants who used shonky credentials to secure top-paying executive positions in Shared Services SA.

Also a division of DPC, the agency is responsible for payroll, accounts and financial services.

DPC chief executive Don Russell triggered an urgent review of hiring over the revelations about Ms Theriault.
