Cellphone Store Employee Arrested For Stealing From Customer's Phone - Took Intimate Video

An employee at a T-Mobile phone store in Pinellas Park, Florida found something he liked on one customer's phone. Instead of just doing his job, he emailed himself the customer's private, X-rated video from her phone.

When she got her phone back, she figured it out. The employee is in hot water; and, apparently, not for the first time.

Roberto Sanchez-Ramos, a 25-year-old from Clearwater, pleaded guilty to a fraudulent scheme meant to inflate his sales performance at T-Mobile. By some miracle, he managed to keep his job.

It looks like Sanchez-Ramos likes to play with fire, though, because he's found the heat is on again. A female customer reported that he stole content from her phone when she brought it in to be serviced.

The victim said she brought the phone into the store so a worker could "reboot and reactivate the service on the phone," according to the Smoking Gun.

After getting her phone back, the victim noticed something strange. It appeared as though some actions had been taken on her private phone apps that she hadn’t performed herself.

Her email had been accessed, and someone sent an email to a party with whom she was not familiar. The item sent was a series of explicit videos she took for her own private use.

Not recognizing the email recipient, and knowing she didn't send the video to anyone, the victim reported the incident to police. Upon investigation, police discovered that not only was Sanchez-Ramos the employee on duty that afternoon at the T-Mobile store, but he's also the owner of the recipient email address in question.

Police arrested Sanchez-Ramos and he was charged with felony counts of offenses against computer users and scheme to fraud. He's being held on a $10,000 bond, and also faces charges for violating his probation for his previous convictions.

In 2013, Sanchez-Ramos also was involved in a grand theft case, but the case was dismissed after he was placed in a pretrial intervention program for first-time offenders. It looks like the more this guy gets away with, the more he thinks he can get away with anything.

This is not the first incident that demonstrates there is a privacy problem emerging with phone service employees. A woman, known only as Joann, says that she brought her phone in for service at a Largo, Florida Sprint store.

According to Joann, 22 nude pictures were stolen from her phone and transferred to an employee’s phone.

Apple employees in Australia were also arrested for routinely stealing explicit photos from the phones of female customers. They would post the photos online in chat rooms to 'rate' the female body parts.

"Everyone feels uncomfortable and the female staff don’t know how to feel because the leadership won’t tell staff who is involved," said an anonymous Apple employee who worked at the store.

"We are investigating a violation of Apple’s business conduct policy at our store in Carindale, where several employees have already been terminated as a result of our findings," an Apple spokesperson said. "We have met with our store team to let them know about the investigation and inform them about the steps Apple is taking to protect their privacy."
