Best Buy, Computers, and Doctor: FBl Has Been Working with Best Buy's Geek Squad to Crack Down on Child Porn Found on People's Computers @balleralert EST BUY FBI Has Been Working with Best Buy’s Geek Squad to Crack Down on Child Porn Found on People's Computers-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to reports, the FBI has been working with Best Buy’s Geek Squad computer repairmen for almost a decade. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The FBI reportedly paid the employees to flag and disclose illegal content that they found on people’s computers, specifically in reference to child pornography. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s account, if a Geek Squad employee finds potentially illegal content on a computer during inspection, they are to contact the FBI and notify them. The agents then review the content, if it is illegal, they then seize the device. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In at least one incident, the FBI reportedly paid a Geek Squad employee $500 for reporting illegal content. They then proceeded to use him as an informant. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ After the prosecution of a California doctor for child abuse imagery found on his computer, the EFF filed a Freedom of Information request to get more knowledge about the extent of the relationship between Geel Squad employers and the FBI. According to reports, the results show that it “circumvents computer owners’ Fourth Amendment rights.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Best Buy insists that they have a moral, and sometimes, legal, obligation to “report these findings to law enforcement,” as they are helping “discover and thwart illegal, abusive behavior,” reports Buzzfeed. However, the retailer assures consumers that they do not actively seek out illegal material and that employees have not received training from law enforcement to “learn how to find it,” reports Fortune.com
