Isn't much to say. People were using SMS pretending they were a funding organisation for the victims set up by the state. People would get text message saying they can transfer funds to their accounts if they wish to give to victims.
Of course we can't, Gazprom is state owned. You can't sue the state and win. They don't pay because they are busy paying themselves when they have negative cash flows. No account balance means no payment unless the state intervenes.
Wow. Well, don't be too surprised, same type of shit happens here all the time. Scumbags will always be scumbags, and they can be found everywhere.
As for the Gazprom issue.... I thought the company is excessively rich? I mean, they are pretty much a growing empire in the world of petrol, so I would have figured they got money comeing out of their asses.
So what are you gonna do? Since you cannot sue them, can't you make any type of claims or are you just screwed? Maybe its best to never work for state own companies, and go straight to private (Like LUKoil or other Russian based private companies)?
