Sure, but many people would be unwilling to rock the boat with a new employer especially after they've come this far. And they'll have excuses like needing it there overnight so their IT guy can install their software, yadda yadda. You don't want to look like a problem on Day One so you acquiesce.

Edit: I've no idea if this specific example is a scam or just a poorly managed company but many scams are all about getting your foot in the door.
