FBI Paid Best Buy Technicians to Inform
Them about Illegal Content on Customer Devices

National Review Online, by Mairead McArdle

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 3/8/2018 5:07:02 AM

The revelation comes as the FBI is accused of targeting Trump campaign officials. The FBI recruited computer technicians at Best Buy to inform them about illegal content on personal devices customers brought in for repairs, new Bureau documents show. The informants were discovered after Best Buy’s Geek Squad technicians at a Kentucky repair shop found thousands of child-pornography images on California doctor Mark Rettenmaier’s computer. The documents from the ensuing court case showed that eight informants were cooperating with the FBI to turn over illegal content. The Electronic Frontier Foundation sued the Department of Justice and finally obtained records the FBI had not

That being said, any pervert with child porn on his computer that is stupid enough to take it to a third party for repair deserves what he gets. Well, he deserves what he gets any way!

In addition, as far as I know computer repair guys are private citizens. If they find criminal activity in the process of doing their job, is it not their duty to notify law enforcement?

I don´t think getting paid for it is a good idea though. They should do it because it is the right thing to do.

Well, I don´t have any illegal stuff on my computer but knowing that BestBuy is snooping for the FBI, I would be sure to never bring them any of my business. There is such a thing as expectation of privacy and it seems like BestBuy is FAR too nosey. Are the geeks drooling over pictures of my teen daughter and friends in swimsuits at a pool party? Frankly it creeps me out and given the FBI´s Gestapo tactics for Mueller´s investigation it seems BestBuy "buys" into it.

Big Brother is watching YOU, at BestBuy.

You can murder any number of people but don´t dare download porn, music or games without appropriate registration. My respect for most law enforcement is gone.

I really hate the idea of government entities paying private citizens to snoop and report on their neighbors. That being said, when it comes to child pornography...that´s a terrible situation. I agree with the above poster who said the reporting should be done because it´s the right thing to do not because you are getting paid to spy; like the people who reported Cruz to the authorities only to be ignored.

I won a $1000.00 reward once. I was a GI traveling in uniform. Sitting at a bus station, I saw on the TV local news they were looking for an escapee. H had L-O-V-E on the back fingers of his left hand and H-A-T-E on the back of the fingers of his right hand. I looked across from me and there the guy was, reading a news paper (hiding his face). I stood up to stretch, looked over the paper and there was the guy. I casually walked over to a cop, pointed the guy out, the cop arrested the guy without incident and took my name and address. Next time I went home for leave, mother gave me the check for $1,000.00 from the city of Louisville. I signed it and gave it to her- she needed it. in 1966 that was quite a lot of money.

If a home service tech came into your house and saw an abused, bruised, child, is he/she not expected to turn that situation in to the authorities? Should they be rewarded for doing it? If so-so what?

Now the reason I told that story is- why should we The People get disjointed over the Geek Squad people getting money for turning in people with illegal content on their computers they work on? Hmmm? What is the difference? I do not see it.

I am more concerned about something being planted by service techs.

Just keep a flash drive to copy important documents to in case of a crash.

If you get a virus, just take the computer back to the factory image. It´s like having a new computer. You can find out how to do it from the mfg. Usually it is a matter of hitting the right key during start up and following the prompts. You will have to buy new anti-virus but the re-image has the factory trial anti-virus for thirty days so you can get up and running.

A bit of a hassle but cheaper than service or a new computer.

I predict Best Buy will be bankrupt within 2 years-Trump economy or no. Geeks are paid to repair the computers-not search files and deleted files for profit paid by taxpayers.
They could install their own dirty files, if needed. Why wouldn´t they? The profit motive can corrupt even geeks. BB is not to be trusted!

Is this legal? Cops pay drug narcs all the time, at least in the cop shows on TV. I suppose it is legal. But, as others have said, it seems like this has the potential for rife abuse whether political or personal.

My neighbor to the east causes me problems all the time--largely related to drug trafficking. When I have spoken to the local police, they tell me that they are fully aware of it--even officers who do not normally work my neighborhood know about it. Yet nothing is done.

But it is okay for police to go through your computer. What the hell?!

BTW, I do NOT think child porn is okay. Far from that! I just don´t care for Totalitarian Big Brother Uncle Sam.

I do not want my computer search by Best Buy. It contains private information. Best Buy cannot discover illegal information, without going through ALL your private files. Best Buy computers are also filled with bloatware and adware that is difficult to remove, because the file locations cannot easily be found. I would never buy anything from Best Buy, or use any of their services. They are not honest.

A few years ago, a Geek Squad employee (in Moorestown NJ) found photos of places etc at Ft Dix. He went to the police. The bad guys were arrested. The bad guys had access to Ft Dix because one of them delivered pizzas there or something stupid like that. The Geek Squad employee was afraid that he would get in trouble for contacting the police.
Also- never buy a used computer unless you can completely clean it.

If you are a computer repair technician and discover something illegal on a pc and you don´t report it you could be charged as an accessory after the fact or something like that. Don´t ever put anything on a computer that can put you in The Clink.

President Trump says he didn´t collude with Russia in 2016, promising something to a foreign country in exchange for his installation as president. That seems increasingly likely to prove true. Where they do not spring from simple malignancy, critics’ arguments that Trump used Russian intervention to win the election are mostly an excuse to avoid the plain truth that Hillary Clinton deservedly lost because she was an awful candidate. And the country is better for that result. We aren’t persuaded, either, that the Russians’ paltry $100,000 in Facebook spending had anything to do with Trump’s win, given that very little of it

After months of back and forth, the Weinstein Company has officially filed for bankruptcy. The disgraced company, founded by Harvey Weinstein and brother Bob, was supposed to be sold to Maria Contreras-Sweet and an investor group before the deal fell apart several times. Weinstein Co. will be sold to Dallas-based Lantern Asset Management for between $300 million and $320 million, according to Variety. “The company hopes that this orderly sale process under the supervision of the Bankruptcy Court will allow it to maximize the value of the Company’s assets for the benefit of its creditors and other stakeholders,” the company

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt will soon end his agency’s use of “secret science” to craft regulations. “We need to make sure their data and methodology are published as part of the record,” Pruitt said in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Otherwise, it’s not transparent. It’s not objectively measured, and that’s important.” Pruitt will reverse long-standing EPA policy allowing regulators to rely on non-public scientific data in crafting rules. Such studies have been used to justify tens of billions of dollars worth of regulations. EPA regulators would only be allowed to consider scientific studies that make their

Trump-Russia special counsel Robert Mueller is authorized to investigate "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump." The popular word for that is collusion, and it remains at the heart of both the Mueller and the Senate Intelligence Committee investigations. (Majority Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee recently announced they were unable to find evidence proving collusion.) While much about the Mueller investigation remains unknown, we do know the indictments he has filed and the pleas he has reached with various figures in the case. There are some, including charges against

Hillary Clinton reliving her presidential election sounds like Miss Havisham talking about her wedding day. They both, one senses, harbored great expectations that became great resentments. The letdown of the loss, of an office and of a husband, unleashed psychological torment. The latter copes by donning her bridal gown; the former, by periodically playing pundit pontificating on why a benighted electorate rejected her. Both characters exude a Dickensian quality in that they come across as such, well, characters. Around the time she tripped over her feet in India last weekend Mrs. Clinton tripped over her words. She blamed her electoral loss on

Announcing that she has filed for divorce from her husband, Donald Trump Jr., Vanessa Trump wrote: “We ask for your privacy at this time.” That isn’t quite what she meant — apparently, nobody in the Trump family ever will speak English as fluently as Melania — but the sentiment was predictable enough. Every divorce is a tragedy, and to act that tragedy out in public (news of the disunion first broke in the New York Post, of course) is going to be unpleasant for the Trumps.

What is it about former Democratic presidents that they can’t leave the arena?

For nearly four decades the man’s been jetting around the world as though his presidency never ended—meeting with foreign leaders and dictators, offering his services as an election monitor in places where fair elections were certain not to happen, making critical and sometimes acerbic comments about his successors and their policies, insinuating himself

President Donald Trump has joined the legal fight over whether a woman is bound by an agreement she signed in 2016 to keep quiet about their alleged affair. Stephanie Clifford, the adult film performer and director known as Stormy Daniels, sued Trump and the company set up by longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen in 2016 to pay Clifford to keep quiet. Lawyers for that company, Essential Consultants (EC), filed a notice Friday afternoon in California to remove her case from state court to federal court and asserted that, under the 2016 agreement, they could seek damages of at least $20 million.

Officials in a Minneapolis school district are trying to figure out why black students are suspended three times more often than their white peers, according to a Sunday report. Black students have a 338 percent higher chance than white students to be suspended at Justice Page Middle School in Minneapolis, Minn., according to The New York Times. Black students make up 41 percent of the Minneapolis school district’s student body, but 76 percent of its suspensions. The black students constantly tell the principal, “The teacher only sees me,” Justice Page Principal Erin Rathke said. She responds, “Yes, that’s probably true.”

The Uber vehicle was in autonomous mode with a human safety driver at the wheel when it struck the woman, who was crossing the street outside of a crosswalk, the Tempe police said in a statement. The episode occurred overnight, although the authorities did not specify whether it was late Sunday or early Monday. The woman was not publicly identified. An

James Kallstrom is no joke. With nearly thirty years in the FBI, several of them as the Assistant Director, Kallstrom knows how the agency functions far more than most. So when he says there was a plot to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution and to illegally influence the 2016 Election people should pay attention. Kallstrom goes on to call the entirety of the FBI investigation against Donald Trump completely phony. Maria Bartiromo’s own take appears very much to compliment Mr. Kallstrom’s assertions. The Deep State shenanigans run very deep and in 2016 are linked to the Obama White House. Barack Obama

The firing of Andrew McCabe, the discovery of his “private notes,” the ill-tempered response by other Obama loyalists and a yet to be disclosed Inspector General’s report on an investigation that began before Donald Trump had come to office are all pieces of a story that dwarfs the still absent evidence of anything Trump and company did to cooperate with Russians in changing votes in Michigan and Wisconsin.
