Samsung employee reportedly swallowed incriminating docs during a price-fixing raid
From what they heard, one of the Samsung employees there had even swallowed documents before the investigators were allowed in.The loyalty and secrecy are so ingrained in Samsung's culture, it seems, that when investigators tried to raid one of its offices for phone price fixing allegations with local carriers, the employees inside blocked their access until the police arrived. In the meantime, they started destroying evidence -facility cameras showed later on that Samsung staff was swapping their work computers with benign ones, and shredding docs. The icing on the cake? One employee was caught actually tearing apart and eating documents, so as the investigators couldn't get a hold of them when they enter the premises. Fascinating stuff, happening not that long ago, in March of 2011. Apple's lawyers were even joking at the time that they can't expect results in a court of law from a company whose employees are willing to go to such lengths to protect any wrongdoing. The rest is history, but it will be interesting to see if there will be any repercussions from Apple about the fingerprint sensor embedded in the home key that came with the Galaxy S5 about six months after Apple introduced its Touch ID finger scanner located precisely there on the iPhone 5s.
