The security experts found hundreds of invoices from a Chinese firm that had done work for their employee.
The man had given the Chinese firm his company log in details so they could access his company accounts. In this way it looked as if he was working a normal nine-to-five day when in fact he was doing nothing.
The investigation also found he was using the same scamnoun dishonest plan for making money in other American companies. He was getting hundreds of thousands of US dollars a year in salary and paying the Chinese firm around $50,000.
A spokesperson for the firm said the man was no longer working there.
