A Bakersfield woman is outraged with the Valley Plaza Mall Apple Store, after an employee stole photos off her phone.
The original Facebook post the woman put up has been shared over a thousand times and now there are investigations.
Fuentes said a male employee took the phone and later gave it back. When Fuentes got home she was petrified, someone sent a text from her phone to a number she didn’t recognize. The contents of the text; a single “personal” photo. Fuentes’ wrote on Facebook, “And this picture was from almost a year ago so he had to have scrolled up for a while.”
While the employee has been fired, this case isn’t over.
According the Bakersfield Police Department, there is an open, active investigation. So criminal charges may be on the table.
MacDailyNews Take: It’s actually kind of surprising that this sort of privacy invasion doesn’t happen more often. Apple Retail Store employees are generally a good bunch, but there is inevitably always one bad apple (pun intended).
If found guilty, prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law.
