Agree with rxantos. It's just that corporations love to control people's lives, hence an employee subcontracting work is going to get into deep trouble. Realistically, there are obviously security concerns with this. The work Wally is supposed to be doing himself might include trade secrets that could be devastating to the company if leaked, etc.

What scam? The work is being done.

Wally is just sub-contracting his work. Which, is what all service oriented companies do. Pay a wage as miserable as possible while overcharging the client as much as you can get away with. Earn the difference as profit.

In a way, you got a Wally Inc. Doing contract work for the company and then sub contracting it to Elbonia. If you think this is a scam. Then all service oriented companies are a scam.

This reminds me of Scott's book where he mentioned that someone was caught working at two separate jobs for the same company, at two different floors of the same building. This guy was caught only because a team member saw him hanging around with the other team and started asking questions.
That company's IT payroll department never noticed that they send two checks to the same person on the same address every month.
