Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of Goldenshores Technologies, LLC
Matter Number:

132 3087

If a users private information on the device is taken prior to the EULA being approved or rejected that is theft. If the information is taken after the EULA is approved and the information redistributed contrary to the EULA then that is fraudulent taking, plus the third party recipients should be charged with receipt of stolen goods. It does no good to lightly slap the hand of this company. Allowing Goldenshores Technologies, LLC. to continue to operate as a business after this large scale criminal enterprise is brought to light is inexcusable. The argument that a corporation as a legal entity that should protect the individual employees is a solid and correct one but there are caveats to this argument. No corporation with a corporate culture that is created with a product that is designed to deceive and a business model that profits by way of that deception should be perceived as anything but a criminal enterprise. There are other entities in the United States that resemble this corporation in culture and business model and there are other entities who do business with them. In this age of privacy invasion, whether it be by private or public concern, should the FTC not be a leader in defending the rights of the people and enforcing the law? Fraud is illegal and by defrauding millions of consumers of their informtation Goldenshores Technologies, LLC. (its employees and its clients) has presented itself as a criminal enterprise that the FTC and the Justice Department should prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. We have seen such pathetic prosecution by the government in cases like these. Do not be persuaded that this is a victimless crime nor that no one profited by this crime nor was this unintentional. Do not allow this criminal enterprise to go unpunished.
