Google got caught with its hand in the cookie jar.
Stefan Magdalinski, writing for Mocality:
Since October, Google’s GKBO appears to have been systematically accessing Mocality’s database and attempting to sell their competing product to our business owners. They have been telling untruths about their relationship with us, and about our business practices, in order to do so. As of January 11th, nearly 30% of our database has apparently been contacted.
I did not expect to find a human-powered, systematic, months-long, fraudulent (falsely claiming to be collaborating with us, and worse) attempt to undermine our business, being perpetrated from call centres on 2 continents.
The news coming out these days about Google is all sunshine and peaches, huh? Make sure you read Stefan’s entire post.
