A security check on a US company has reportedly revealed one of its staff was outsourcing his work to China.

The software developer, in his 40s, is thought to have spent his workdays surfing the web, watching cat videos on YouTube and browsing Reddit and eBay.

He reportedly paid just a fifth of his six-figure salary to a company based in Shenyang to do his job.


We probably have an idea who he is. Frequents OTW.

It's OK for corporations to do it, but try and gain from the same system, and they cry foul.
