GoldmanSachs666 Message Board

According to the Collins English Dictionary 10th Edition fraud can be defined as: "deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage".[1] In the broadest sense, a fraud is an intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual; the related adjective is fraudulent. The specific legal definition varies by legal jurisdiction. Fraud is a crime, and also a civil law violation. Defrauding people or entities of money or valuables is a common purpose of fraud, but there have also been fraudulent "discoveries", e.g. in science, to gain prestige rather than immediate monetary gain

Want to Know How Goldman Sachs Works?

Goldman Sachs has a distinctive business philosophy:  the client comes first--after Goldman Sachs.

Take the Dragon Systems deal that Goldman Sachs was asked to underwrite.  You will see how Goldman treats its smaller clients:  it gives advice for millions of dollars but does not always deliver, i.e., it proved to be incompetent and misleading.  Goldman has no mystique and only leaves a trail of broken dreams behind it.  Conflicts of interest mean nothing to it.

Goldman Sachs is an appalling bank.

The deal, the $580 million sale of a highflying technology company, Dragon Systems, had just been approved by its board and congratulations were being exchanged. But even then, at that moment of celebration, there was a sense that something was amiss. 
The chief executive of Dragon had received a congratulatory bottle from the investment bankers representing the acquiring company, a Belgian competitor called Lernout & Hauspie. But he hadn’t heard from Dragon’s own bankers at Goldman Sachs

“I still have not received anything from Goldman,” the executive wrote in an e-mail to the other bank. “Do they know something I should know?” 

More than a decade later, that question is still reverberating in a brutal legal battle between Goldman and the founders of Dragon Systems — along with a host of other questions that go to the heart of how financial giants like Goldman operate and what exactly they owe their clients.
