Where I work we use scripts we made to do user management, mainly so it
can update things across various servers. At the end of the script it
sends an email informing everyone that '$USER added $newusername' or
something similar. I don't know if what you are after is being alerted
in case a malicious user adds an account... that would probably be
better accomplished by using something like aide or tripwire against the
~ passwd file.
Hope that helps.
