    FBI Used Best Buy's Geek Squad To Increase Secret Public Surveillance. Recently unsealed records reveal a much more extensive secret relationship than previously known between the FBI and Best Buy's Geek Squad, including evidence the agency trained company technicians on law-enforcement operational tactics, shared lists of targeted citizens and, to covertly increase surveillance of the public, encouraged searches of computers even when unrelated to a customer's request for repairs. http://www.ocweekly.com/news/fbi-us...o-increase-secret-public-surveillance-7950030

    How much CP downloaders are there? $500 reward seems like a nice bonus, but with all the scares by the FBI, it seems not many would download CP, so something that may be once a month or only a few times a year.

    This seems something that a Jimmy type of person would say in court.
    "experts for both the defense and the government testified that it's not only possible for files from the internet to land on a computer without the owner's knowledge, but that it also frequently happens."

    I can't stress enough how utterly disturbing it is that any govt agency is doing this.

    If you lack the basic ability to do the repairs that Best Buy (Geek Squad) or staples would do, then you probably do not belong in IM as a blackhat. The stuff they do is determine if a card is bad, determine if the MB is bad, determine if the PS is bad, and run virus scanners. Of course, as the world has known for a while, they also scan for porn and child porn.

    To give you the idea of the skill level of most repair facilites, including Best Buy, a real life story is appropriate. I have a PC Laptops Desktop. The fan in the PS went out. I went to PC laptops to buy a fan. They told me that they could not sell me one because no one makes them. (BS as I will show.) Then I went to Best Buy and was told the same. Then I went to a PC builder I know that imports from China. He went into his back rook and came out with one in about two minutes. Cost? About $20. That was this year. PC Laptops and Best Buy were willing to sell me a new Power supply though. I do not believe in spending money that does not need spending.

    In America you can even get charged for having child porn if its of someone of legal age if they can't verify the age. If its of some amateur from another country, good look getting subpoenas to track them down. As marijuana becomes more legal and police/sheriffs department start losing revenue I wouldn't be surprised if they also get in on this deal. The majority of people would agree to pay a fine and have their tech confiscated while pleading to a lesser charge that keeps them off the news and sex offender list, than to get on the news for being a viewer of CP even if all the content they had was of persons of legal age.

    Child pornography is highly degenerate,immoral and not protected by the first amendment. Nothing wrong with offering a bonus for those that find out someone has CP on their computers and reporting it.

    You could just say you are jealous that you didn't work at geek squad making $500 for each pedo you helped to bust.

    Actually, proper people would have no business looking into your pictures while scanning for virus, or installing a driver for a new video card. If they go into your pictures when there is no need to do so, then they are busy bodies and snoops rather than proper people.

    I like that when there's any post on BHW even remotely related to politics I get to watch Capo Dei Capi's Reich-like perception of reality in action.
    Capo's the type of intelligence nark to help stalk women and children for a couple bucks, all because they're 3rd cousin is a pedophile.
    The end does not justify the means, unless you long for 1984.

    I am using Easy Blog Networks hosting service for PBN's for my 20-site network, and have been communicating and keeping logs of everything in Google Docs with a VA. I haven't been hit by anything. In fact, my metrics are rising and my PBN articles are ranking for some of my client search terms.

    Watch me get struck today now...

    Exactly. It's kind of like paying someone to fix your garage door and then come home to find them with their nose in your wife's panty drawer. Not cool.

    It's probably how they planted images of children on my computer to take me down.

    A person trying to hide what they're doing at the smallest level... wouldn't take their CP filled computer to someone else. As obvious as this sounds, I bet tons of people get caught this way.
