Ruh-roh…. Alexa is really mad at these guys

Amazon is suing these guys for making a fake “wrap-around” Alexa startup animation to dupe people into granting unauthorized access to systems.  Of course, these are only allegations and you’ll need to monitor the docket to see what answer, if any, the Defendants offer as the matter progresses.

But this is one hell of a complaint.  Whoever wrote this earned their freaking paycheck.  That’s my legal opinion.  I have no idea whether any of the allegations are true, but it sure as hell seems like they’re ready to prove they are.  And that’s how you know it’s a well written complaint.  Someone at Amazon said give these guys no quarter, and DWT has not given any.  It also demonstrates some of Amazon’s investigation techniques and vigilance.  Yikes.
