U.S. Employee Caught Outsourcing His Job To China
In order to spend the day on eBay and Facebook, one man sent his tasks to foreign workers.
After a security check, a U.S. firm found one of its employees outsourcing his job overseas. The person in question is a software developer in his 40s, who paid just a fifth of his six-figure salary to a company based in China to do the work for him. He reportedly spent most of his workdays procrastinating on the web on sites likes YouTube, Reddit, and eBay.
The extortion was discovered when the U.S. company asked Verizon to perform an audit after seeing some anomalous activity on its VPN logs, and suspecting a security breach.
