Did you hear about the guy who subcontracted his job to China so he could watch cat videos all day?
In what can only be called a) a stroke of genius b) a heap of chutzpah c) hilarious d) fraud, a software developer working for an American firm turned around and hired a developer in China to complete his work for him - effectively outsourcing his own role.
He was able to hire the Chinese developer for about 1/5th of his six-figure salary, and with all his spare time, his typical day looked like this (according to the security blog that reported it):
9:00 a.m. – Arrive and surf Reddit for a couple of hours. Watch cat videos
11:30 a.m. – Take lunch
1:00 p.m. – Ebay time.
2:00 – ish p.m Facebook updates – LinkedIn
4:30 p.m. – End of day update e-mail to management.
5:00 p.m. – Go home
The only reason he was even caught was because of a security review that noticed Chinese IP addresses accessing the company VPN using his account.
