Sounds like he does not spend 2k $ per day but gets Linar for free worth 2k $ a day.
Wouldn't suprise me at all. If they go on like this, its just a matter of time, until they can keep their productions behind the chinese wall, cuz noone would want them outside. They simply behave like their regime does.

He may not get it totally free, but he could pay as 1/10 (or less). 3 years ago, when I played a famous mobile game (should not write name here), game supporter pm heads of clans that if you pay $99 then they will send another $99 USD worth of gems to their account, they even form a chat list to support those guys. That is for gamers, the game also allow game officers setup and lead clan, it's not hard to know game officers would have much better prices.
Same to you, I think the guy above could tell the truth, based on the value he got benefits from, not the money he spent.
