8 Southwest Airlines Employees Charged with Ticket Fraud

8 ex-employees of Southwest Airlines were charged with attempting a pretty impressive ticket scam that would have net them about a million dollars.  Basically, the employees took used tickets and re-sold them to passengers who were paying cash for tickets.  The workers would then just pocket the cash.  Not too shabby.  But still shabby enough that they got caught.  In case you were thinking of doing this yourself, the airline has changed its controls to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
