Phone Giant Faces Lawsuit Over Stolen Nude Images from Customer’s Trade-In

Phone Giant Slapped with Major Lawsuit After ⁣Nude Images Stolen from Customer’s Trade-In

One of the biggest telecommunications companies in America is facing a lawsuit after an employee stole nude⁣ images from a customer’s device.

The plaintiff in⁤ the case ​alleges that an employee of⁤ the company retrieved images of a⁤ sexual ⁤nature from ​her iPhone while transferring data to a new device, CNBC reported Friday.

The theft took place⁤ in October 2022 ​at the T-Mobile store at the Columbia‌ Center Mall in southern⁢ Washington.

The lawsuit says the woman discovered⁣ that images⁤ from her ​phone — including nude photos and‌ a video of⁣ her ⁢having sex — had⁣ been transferred to a Snapchat account. Police later⁤ traced that account to the employee.

The woman —​ identified by the pseudonym Jane‌ Doe in the lawsuit‌ — said she confronted management at the ⁢T-Mobile store in question,​ only to be told that she needed to ​pay ‌the full price for the phone data‍ transfer before she ⁤could get her phone ‍back.

“Rather than helping ​Jane out in the ‌face of the sexual privacy crime, the ⁤T-Mobile manager said if Jane wanted access back to the old device that had been ⁣weaponized against her,‍ Jane would need to pay them the amount that they had discounted her‍ for the trade-in,” the lawsuit says.

“Jane’s mother on Jane’s behalf surrendered and paid the amount,” it says.

The individual responsible for the theft ⁢of her content pleaded guilty to a charge of ⁤first-degree⁤ computer trespass last month, according to the lawsuit.

The suit⁢ points to numerous other cases​ involving T-Mobile‍ allegedly “turning a blind eye” to theft of customers’ data.

“For almost a decade, T-Mobile customers​ across the United⁤ States have regularly reported, evidenced⁢ by ⁤news stories and lawsuits, instances of retail store employees stealing their intimate videos, explicit ​photos, and bank accounts,” it says.

“Nevertheless, ⁣T-Mobile ‌has failed to implement any common-sense security hardware or ⁣software to protect consumers from their data⁤ and privacy being exploited‌ during ordinary transactions at the T-Mobile store,” the lawsuit says.

At​ least eight other lawsuits have been filed⁤ against the phone company ⁣alleging similar privacy violations, according to CNBC.

T-Mobile‍ agreed ⁢to a $350 million settlement earlier this year in connection to a data breach affecting its customers.

T-Mobile said in‌ a statement that ‍the ​individual responsible was an employee ‍of a third-party contractor, CNBC reported.

“This was an employee of a third-party authorized retailer, and he was terminated,” it said.

“While we are unable to comment on the specifics of this pending‍ case, we want to underscore that we take customer protection and‌ issues​ like this very seriously,” the company said.

“We​ have policies and procedures ​in place to protect customer information and ⁤expect them to be followed.”

A ​Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

I walked into the office one morning and ⁤noticed something ‍strange. Half of The Western Journal’s readership was missing.

It had finally happened. Facebook had flipped THE switch.

Maybe‌ it was⁤ because we wrote about ivermectin. Or election ⁢integrity. Or‌ the Jan. 6 detainees. Or ballot mules.

Whatever the reason,‌ I immediately knew what to⁣ do. We had to turn to ‌you because, frankly, we know you‍ are the only ones we ⁣can trust.

Can you help?⁢ Every donation to The Western⁢ Journal goes ​directly to funding our team of ‍story researchers, writers and editors⁤ who doggedly pursue the truth and expose the corrupt elites.

Can I count on you for a small⁣ donation? We operate on a shoestring compared to other‍ news media companies,⁣ so I can personally promise that not ‍a penny of your donation will‍ be wasted.

If you‌ would rather become a WJ member ⁢ outright, you can do that⁣ today as well.

We will use every single cent to fight against the lies and corruption in ‌high places.‍ And as long as we have your help, we will never ⁢give up.

Sincerely,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor
