Accelerated theft

I saw this image when I checked into my flight:

It may seem like an innocent way to add more miles to your account, unless you consider that many flights are paid by companies. The miles go to the person, the company pays.

Many companies have allowed workers to keep their miles, as a type of perk, but those perks were limited by ACTUAL flying. Now a worker can "accelerate" the transfer of miles money from his employer to himself.
