7 On Your Side
Store employee posts to social network from customer's cellphone
A man who tried to get his cellphone repaired has a warning to everyone -- log out of your mobile accounts first.
Rich Dewberry returned his faulty cellphone to Best Buy, but forgot to log out of his mobile Facebook account. Minutes after he left the store, a Facebook status message went out from his old phone saying he is gay. Dewberry says a Best Buy employee must have sent it.
Instantly friends and relatives began calling him up.
Best Buy told Dewberry the employee was fired. It said staff members all sign a code of ethics on proper handling of customer information.
