BEST BUY EMPLOYEE ACCESSES CUSTOMER’S FACEBOOK ACCOUNT ON EXCHANGED PHONE
Rich Dewberry, a customer at a Denver BEST BUY exchanged his smartphone and got more than he bargained for.
After his exchange, a Best Buy employee later accessed Dewberry’s FACEBOOK ACCOUNT that he left logged in. The Best Buy employee posted a message under Dewberry’s account reading, “I am gay. I’m coming out.”
Dewberry who says he’s straight, began receiving calls from friends and an ex spouse in response to the Facebook posting.
Though Best Buy made no official statement confirming any action taken against the employee, Dewberry says Best Buy informed him the employee had been terminated.
Moral of the story, always wipe your smartphone (reset to factory settings) before returning it.
