I was talking to a friend today and he was telling me about how a contractor he works with offered to give him kickbacks on jobs as a thank you for the recurring work and a way for my buddy to get a little extra cash. So, for each job the contractor completed he inflates the invoice price by a couple of hundred dollars. Then, at a later date, the contractor would give that additional money to my friend in cash. This isn't a situation where the job is bid out - the contractor regularly does jobs for my friend. So in other words, my buddy's employer is giving the contractor his invoice price and my buddy is getting cash without the employer knowing about it. Well, of course, the first thing I said to my friend is: "Wait a minute, sir, that is illegal!! You should have higher morals than that!" And while this is obviously a textbook example of white collar crime, I am curious to know if you seedy Wackbaggers would ever accept kickbacks?
