Mocality accuses Google of abusing its data and lying

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.

Furthermore, they now seem to have outsourced this operation from Kenya to India.

we will have no choice but to play their game

But we do not have to be victimized by that game. This report is important and should be a head's up for all webmasters out there.

The problem here is NOT that they were using Mocality data (its publicly available after all).

The problem is that Google sales people lied to customers, claiming to be partnership with Mocality, and making false claims about Mocality's charges.
