Submission + - Geek Squad busted for Copying Customer's Porn (consumerist.com)

josquint writes: ""We took it to around a dozen Best Buy Geek Squads and asked them to perform simple tasks, like installing iTunes. Most places were fine, sometimes doing the job right on the counter, sometimes even for free. Then we caught one well-seasoned Geek Squad Agent copying personal and pornographic images and video from our computer to his company-issued thumb drive" Also see the Log files and the confession!.
