American worker outsources his workload to China

According to this Verizon Business case study, an American worker in a major US infrastructure company found a novel way of avoiding work - for a fifth of his salary he contracted a Chinese third party to do his work for him - sending the remote worker both his login details and his RSA security dongle to allow them remote access to his employer's network!

His activities were only discovered when the employer became concerned about some unidentified VPN access. Until he was found he was consistently rated in his reviews as the best developer in the building!

Later investigations revealed he was employed by a number of companies and had managed to pull the same trick with each - giving him a massive salary and all the time in the world to surf Facebook!
