Cheating the Employer is Unlawful

I have a relative who works as a telephone operator; he sometimes transfers long-distance calls for me for free, without letting his employer know that he does so. Am I sinning, even though the company is well off and isn't affected by what we do?

This practice is unlawful unless your relative attains permission from them; it is treachery on the part of your relative. I ask Allaah Almighty to guide us all.

Shaykh `Abdul-`Azeez Bin Baz
