Boss Gives Employees a New Year's Bonus, but It's a Trap


A boss of a company in China gave his employees a New Year's Eve bonus. It was money and he sent it through an app called WeChat, a Chinese app where people can send money and chat.

The boss was nervous about people using their phones during work and used the money as a way to find out who uses their electronics on the clock. The gift was for about nine U.S. dollars. It was sent during work hours as a Trojan horse -- and three employees fell for it.

When we say fell for it, it's because people whoever opened the app to accept the money was fined 76 dollars for slacking off.

According to Want Daily, a Taiwanese newspaper, the boss said "Usually it's hard to tell which employees are slacking off work while playing around on their phones but I came up with a good method to figure it out."
