Uber’s Secret Tool for Keeping the Cops in the Dark

quote [ At least two dozen times, the San Francisco headquarters locked down equipment in foreign offices to shield files from police raids.

they’d been trained to page a number that alerted specially trained staff at company headquarters in San Francisco. When the call came in, staffers quickly remotely logged off every computer in the Montreal office, making it practically impossible for the authorities to retrieve the company records they’d obtained a warrant to collect. The investigators left without any evidence. ]

Diabolically effective response to the fact that uber's business model invites police raids.

Taking your illegal ledgers, throwing them in a safe, and locking the door as we enter the property is obstruction.

Hiring someone to lock that safe FOR YOU makes you guilty of obstruction, he other person is aiding/abetting the commission of a crime, and (because it’s a unit specifically created for this purpose) conspiracy to commit a crime.

Using foreign nationals to commit the crime from afar makes it a federal affair for both countries involved and adds some pretty serious ramifications.

As I said below, UBER surrendered everything the very next day after speaking to their counsel.

The story linked is romanticizing the idea that UBER (a company) was able to stop Canadian authorities (for a single day) using remote computer technology.
