Microsoft Threatens to Help

Consulting Pitch Disguised as Licensing Intimidation

Just when you thought Micro$oft was as gross as they could be, they coat themselves in slime. A MS employee responsible for drumming up new consulting business approached a software customer with a pitch that sounded like the customer was violating their licensing agreement. In truth, the ploy was meant as a way to get “in” with the customer and sell them consulting services.

The back-breaking straw? The employee was following an MS script– the sales technique is policy.

I’m so glad I just bought a Mac.
