The HARTFORD COURANT reports on a monumental fiduciary foul-up by the Tribune Company, the corporation that owns the Chicago Cubs - and the Hartford Courant newspaper. Company executives last year accidently paid a Courant news carrier named Mark Guthrie $301,000, instead of former Cubs pitcher Mark Guthrie. After the newspaper delivery guy refused to return the money, the company removed $275K from his account, until the payee had the account frozen. Guthrie claims he didn’t voluntarily give the money back because "he wants assurances he won’t get hit with a big tax bill from the IRS. "He wants an audit of his bank account because he believes some of his paychecks were mistakenly sent to Guthrie, the baseball player. He wants his legal bills paid and is considering a countersuit. He said Tribune had no business going into his bank account." (Login/Pass)
