Vicki Burke was dismissed by Canada Post after it was discovered she was defrauding her New Brunswick-based employer.

Burke was terminated on Aug. 6, 2014, after an investigation found she had breached corporate policy and defrauded the corporation of funds.

Burke, a postal clerk, was found to have accepted and signed for customer parcels without authorization and to have provided change of address and hold mail services to relatives and customers without payment, resulting in a loss of revenue for the employer.
