If You Don’t Want Nekkid Pictures Of Yourself On The Internet

…Well, it seems to me best if you don’t take them in the first place

SACRAMENTO, CA (KGO) — A Sacramento woman says a tech support engineer in India managed to expose her secrets and make charges to her credit card after she called him with a desperate request.

There’s no getting around the fact that Tara Fitzgerald was faced with an embarrassing situation and a 14-year-old daughter in the house.

“I was missing pictures on my computer. And they were personal pictures and I didn’t feel comfortable,” said Fitzgerald.

Oh, and there’s also no getting around the fact that she, um, makes poor decisions…

So she called Dell support for help with her new Dell computer and delicate problem. She was connected to a Dell support contractor in Mumbai, India named Riyaz Shaikh.

“I trusted him. I trusted him because he was a Dell technician and I don’t like the cyberworld, you’re so vulnerable,” said Fitzgerald.

She gave the technician permission to access her computer remotely and watched as he found the pictures and downloaded them.

Shockingly, dear Riyaz then promptly created a website and posted the photos.

But the story gets even better (you’ll have to read the link to find out).

Suffice it to say that our Dear Tara ain’t the brightest star in the firmament.

    As a former Dell engineer, I can say I had nothing to do with the guys in tech support. Though I did try to find some of them girlfriends in Tennessee.

    Tech support is mostly a scam, which is why, by and large, I prefer to build my own computers from components. I rarely use tech support, and mostly for software issues.

    Oh my gosh, what happened after that. . . that dude was evil but she was dumber than a pile of rocks. It’s an unbeatable combination.

    I suppose I’ll be the one to say it… he really wanted nekkid pix of HER??? I weep for the city of Mumbai. And her boyfriend, on several counts.
