On December 18, 2006, our Salesforce.com account was stolen. Someone used our identities and password to access the account, remove us as users, and Systems Administrators, as well as substitute other people. We filed a police report, Case #2006-02954, with the Suwanee, Georgia police department (770-945-8995). We contacted Salesforce.com notifying them that our account had been stolen. Their response was slow, but eventually Marc Benioff did make contact. A Mr. Kenneth Juster also responded and stated: “Just for your information the account has not been accessed or used since December 18 so there’s no indication that any harm has been done” – January 2, 2007, 4:57 PM, Voicemail to Jim Miller. Salesforce.com advertises that it has a “secure authentification system” in use. Our company is likely to go bankrupt without the assistance of Salesforce.com. We want to know what ethical, moral, and possibly legal basis Salesforce.com is withholding information. How many times does the account have to be stolen before, Mr. Juster will agree that harm has been done? We will never again use a web based CRM with this lack of security, lack of customer response, and a flippant disregard for business ethics, values, and morals.
