Small company owned by PC shadowrunners – which legal form it should be?


Intro:

We are playing SR3 in Seattle, but all players and GMs are from Europe & not skilled in law, not mentioning USA/Shadowrun law.

We are seeking for something somehow believable in USA/SR3 context (so we can find more about that later and build on that).

PCs got and took offer from friendly NPC (which "owes" them a lot and is trusted and good positioned) to buy some IDs and small company. They want run that as legal front for their new IDs to have "legal source of income" and a way for customers to be able pay by official money somehow. The company would own some buildings, cars and equipement too. PCs have large net of NPC contacts, which are willing and able "buy services" from that company (while paid by PCs for that) to keep the company alive, if needed. PCs should be able secretly run mentioned company while posing as "only ordinaly employees".

Antifraud and financial teams are not usually extra interested actively investigate such "small fishes".

Question:

GM does not know, what kind of legal form that should be called (like "Freds Services, inc." or so) and what to google for.


Background:

We play in really light "shadows", usually just some investigations, creating chaos here and there for distractration and such, PCs already killed few humans (mostly in "really excessive self defence"), but there are no visible traces to them and it is more exception, than a rule. The setting is soft and forgiving a lot, GM helps players to win many times. We just want to have fun and cinematic, not heavy drama and strugling. The "real action" takes less than half of gaming time, the rest is spend by buiding house, repairing and enhancing gear, cooking, gardening, chatting, dog shamman hiding bones on secret places … So the following plan should succeed and work for some time and offer a lot of small activities too.

The background is, that some well hidden NPC/company collected some IDs of peoples, who died, bud was not entered as dead in system, corpses dissapeared and those IDs was "kept alive", transfered to work for some existing company "Bettys laboratories, something" (which was build and kept just for this purpose), used for who know what for years (need a lend ID to spend a week with prostitues in resort? Here is ID for the week, for some price, so you real ID get no moral harm … style). And now the owner wants to close this "Bettys laboratories", sell all IDs to Shadows, divide the company to many idependent smaller independent sections/branches (via net of transactions) and sell them for lot of money. He have good law suport and knows what he is doing to hide the origins, but probably wants to start something different and bigger and so he want to capitalise this "Bettys laboratories" fast and discreetly. (GMs narative, why PC can buy legally clean company and new IDs, which are basically real.)

Our idea is, that that the "Fred’s Services" will own a house, some cars, properly hire a (innoncent, not knowing) secretary to take phones and transfer messages around, fill legal forms for taxes and make a chair in companys house warm. All income of this company will be "arranged" somehow and spend for paying the house, secretary and couple of "employees". The company would be able to officially send an invoice for some inoncent "services" (like consultations) to ABC.inc (or DEF.inc, or who is todays customer), which would pay for it and put it into official accounting, but those "services" would be simple fictional, intangible and just way to pay the real shadowruner. Basically money laundering of some kind. "Employees" would spend part of the wage to keep "conspiracy flat" paid, part for consumables (everybody needs food & groceries) and rest on "pleasures" (like prostitues, drinks, etc.) which they would then get back in "dirty money" to buy guns and other illegal equipement.

How does a company check the password received from your phone keypad during a call?

I had to call customer service recently regarding my 401(k) and robo call in the beginning asked me to enter my social security number using the keypad followed by a # and then asked for my account password using the keypad followed by # where special characters are *.

If the passwords are stored as hashes in their database, how is it possible that they can compare your input and verify it matches the password stored?

Punched in through a keypad, Hunter21 becomes 48683721 which would be indistinguishable from gtmtd7b1. It does not seem reasonable to compare all possible combinations of 48683721 to the hash because when including special characters and capitalization, it becomes more complex.

My only thought would be that they are storing my password as plaintext and comparing my keypad entered value to it and that would be concerning. I suppose when I first create the password they could convert it to the keypad equivalent number and hash/store that.

Is this common practice?

Setting Up Private Employee Survey Area On Company Website [closed]

Long-time listener, first-time caller.

Our company has about 120 Employees and growing. We are at a point where we need to collect self-evaluations and other survey data from our workforce but only our administrators and managers have user accounts with our Google Apps (because those costs add up!) Since we can’t require anyone to have a personal Google account, we don’t have a reliable way to verify or authenticate the rest of our employees as they fill out surveys. Our solution so far is to hand out paper forms and do the data entry manually.

I’ve been charged with finding a solution. I was thinking it’d be possible to set up a member area of sorts on our website where employees could register and log in for surveys and such. I could get Google Sheets talking to the survey database and we’d be off to the races.

Our public-facing site is hosted on SquareSpace, if that makes any difference.

Anyway, the world has changed many times over since I’ve had anything to do with the back end of a website (it’s true; I’m not a pro) and I’m completely unsure of where to start, but I can probably build it once I get my bearings so I’m here looking for suggestions on how to start.

Company asking admin rights of my personal laptop [migrated]

So, I bought my own laptop and now my manager/IT people are asking for admin rights of my personal laptop and asking to use it office purpose only.

What should I do? If I don’t agree to give then these rights, they are threatening to fire me. Is it normal? Do I have any employee rights to disagree and fight?

Can my company track my web history when Opera VPN is active?

Today I brought my personal laptop to the office. My laptop connects to the personnel wi-fi automatically (not actual intranet). To mention, my work ID and password are needed to connect this network. I was working on Google Chrome and i wanted to look at something that is not work related, so i opened Opera Browser. And i saw that NSFW url on the tab (it was cached at home and it seems i forgot to close it) I closed the browser as i saw it even before any content was loaded. And now, i am worried about this situation.

The thing is, after i returned home, i opened Opera and i saw Opera VPN was active. And history was clean in working hours (Well, i can’t tell for sure because i am pretty worried so i can’t think straight. And i cleaned the whole history)

Long story short, it was a personal computer (not a work computer). It was on a company network with validation. Opera VPN was open.

1) Is it possible that my visit didn’t get logged in history as i mentioned above ? (due to fact that VPN was trying to start up and i closed the browser immediately)

2) Can Opera attempt to send that request without VPN as i open browser when VPN starts up?

3) Do you think it was logged by my employer?

4) What should i do in this situation? (It was a total mistake, i didn’t attempt to visit any NSFW website at work, i just forgot to close it and i didn’t stay there even a second. I even didn’t get to see if website was blocked or not)

P.S. I am working in a finance sector, so there is full security
