Circuit City Used Consoles Had Porn, CC #'s

I love the smell of consumer scandal in the mornings! Apparently, pre-owned consoles taken in by Circuit City--before the chain officially closed its doors--contained personal information such as credit card numbers and homemade porn that was never deleted before liquidation. Circuit City did not wipe the drives before selling off the used merchandise, meaning personal information stored on the hard drives (or other data storage devices) remained intact if the consumer did not remove the information prior to selling the device. To be fair to CC, I would never, ever trade something in without having wiped it first, the same way I wouldn’t give dirty clothes to charity. That said, this sucks for the people who traded in and are now worrying about getting their credit cards scammed.

    Of course the woman on the commercial was a actress. Does anyone honestly think that Microsoft randomly approach someone and give them this challenge? This would be like hunting down a kid from a Sunny D commercial to see him choose the soda (or god forbid the purple stuff) over the Sunny D.
