Lawsuit Claims Oil Exec Pretended To Be Elon Musk

It would seem that Tesla is suing an oil pipeline services executive, claiming he used a Yahoo mail account to try to impersonate Elon Musk. Apparently the "kthx 4 h4rd werx" gave it away that the e-mails were not from Musk himself.

The lawsuit filed on Wednesday alleges that Todd Katz, the chief financial officer for Quest Integrity Group, created the fake email address "elontesla@yahoo.com" and posed as Tesla CEO Elon Musk requesting confidential information. Quest Integrity "provides pipeline services and other management solutions for the oil and gas industry," according to the suit.
