A York County IT consultant and a Maryland executive have pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and criminal forfeiture, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Donald J. Cochran Jr., 44, of New Park and David B. Bossi, 43, of Phoenix, Md., conspired to defraud Adecco S.A. out of nearly $1.5 million, a news release stated.
Adecco S.A. is a Global Fortune 500 company with a domestic headquarters in Mellville, N.Y.
Between 2003 and 2006, Bossi worked as vice president for Ajilon Consulting, an Adecco subsidiary, police said. In 2006, he was responsible for the reviewing and approving of all Data Center Consolidation Project invoices, which entailed a relocation to North Carolina.
Cochran was the owner of Information Technology consulting firms -- Technology Products and Services and Information Technology Management Systems -- headquartered in York County.
Cochran submitted about 64 false invoices between August 2007 and August 2008 for equipment and services that were never provided to Adecco on the DCC Project, police said.
