2005 KIRK SHELTON, the former vice-chairman of Cendant was sent to jail for ten years and ordered to pay back more than $3 billion lost from the company because of the $500 million fraud he orchestrated. Shelton’s false filings and fraudulent actions inflated Cendant’s sales by more than $500 million. He was accused of masterminding the frauds to drive up the company’s share price and help it to meet Wall Street profit targets. In turn, the falsely inflated stock price kept his pay and bonuses rising, even though the company was in much poorer financial health than the market believed.     The Times
