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 "" 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.
