We all know Elon Musk do hate or love with passion. And, be that as it may, there’s one state we can all agree on he has a lot on his plate. He’s working on that consolidation with Solar City, supervising to get funds for Tesla, and now he’s broaching with the discharge of that SpaceX missile.
Well, you can now increase corporate spying to the database of things Musk is broaching with as he has just filed suit against the CFO Chief Financial Officer of Quest Integrity Group, Todd Katz, for wit.
So far, Mr. Katz has been the only serviceman of QIG that was mentioned in the suit, and Musk is apparently desiring a covert amount of financial recompense for Katz’s asserted acts. So, how did Katz strive to impersonate Musk? Well, it’s actually quite amusing. Reason is the oil industry executive apparently created a counterfeit email record and strove to get secret company information. To be more precise, he was trying to learn about Tesla’s financial predictions and vehicle pre-order figures.
The e-mail was sent to Tesla’s CFO Jason Wheeler shortly after an incomes call with analysts. The e-mail used was “firstname.lastname@example.org“ and text included as
“why you so cautious w Q3/4 gm guidance on call? also what are your thoughts on disclosing M3 res#? Pros/cons from ir pov? what is your best guess as to where we actually come in on q3/4 deliverables. honest guess? no bs. thx 4 hard work prepping 4 today"
Seattle based QIG is a oil pipeline services company renders services to leading oil companies like BP, Chevron, and ExxonMobil. There’s no word as to whether or not QIG’s cases had anything to do with Katz’s asserted acts, but thinking the phenomenon electric cars and hybrids could have on the oil industry, it wouldn’t be amazing.
First off, you’ve got to find the message in the codes that was allegedly used in a strive to get this communication. It has been informed that it is akin to a codes that Musk used in the past. The e-mail was sent to Tesla’s CFO, who most likely communicates quite often with Musk via e-mail and was probably able to point the counterfeit e-mail right away.
It really makes you astonishment if Katz operating on his own or did someone from one of the oil companies put him up to it and how far this situation will go.
