SEATTLE —

Federal authorities say a former Microsoft manager tricked a vendor into defrauding the company out of about $460,000 last year.

A complaint unsealed in U.S. District Court in Seattle on Tuesday charges Robert D. Curry with three counts of wire fraud. The FBI says he was a business development director with Microsoft's Strategic Partnerships Team and persuaded a vendor called Pentad Solutions to write checks for services that weren't provided.

In reality, agents say he used the money for high-end audio equipment and other personal expenses, including a trip to Whistler, British Columbia.

Curry was making an initial appearance in federal court Tuesday afternoon. He was fired from Microsoft in January.
