Dell tech flashes woman with (her own) jubblies

Remote nude pic 'boosts' star rep

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Updated A DellConnect IT specialist has been accused of intercontinental sexual hijinx for remotely flashing a woman client with a nude photo - of herself.

According to a report in The Orange County Register out of Santa Ana, California, 45-year-old Stacy Gore received the boobular surprise when she was working with an India-based Dell tech-support drone to disinfect her virus-infected PC.

After a reported two and a half hours of remote ministrations to the ailing computer, Gore was surprised to find herself staring at her own breasts - onscreen, that is.

"It creeped me out," she told the OCR.

The DellConnect tech had found the dishabille digital depiction on Gore's computer - a phone-shot image, she claims, that she had forgotten about.

From the OCR report, however, it might be argued that Gore could have been tipped off that something was not quite right earlier in her DellConnect session. During the alleged two and a half hours of alleged disinfection, the tech - who identified himself by the not-so-Mumbaish name of Jack Neos - had repeatedly used her laptop's camera to snap pictures of her (clothed, we must assume) and display them to her on her laptop screen.

After the breast-revealing display trick, Gore received an email from Jack telling her: "I saw ur NUDE pics i m really sry I couldn't say that over the phone that is y I m saying it now. N u look very very very very cute...it boosted me up and hope to have a good, sweet, cute, adorable, friend like U : )"

What Jack lacks in English-language skills he more than makes up for in enthusiasm - and to be fair we must credit him for the new-to-us engorgement euphemism of "boosted me up."

Up to this this point, Gore had pretty much taken the whole incident in stride. "Look, I'm a pretty mellow person," she told the OCR, "If some guy wants to look at a nude picture of some 45-year-old chick who was hot 20 years ago, then I say go ahead - that's fine with me.

But two days after her marathon customer-service experience, Gore fired up her laptop only to discover that her wallpaper had been changed to - you guessed it - those same jubblies. And that's when Gore called the cops.

"What concerns me is that other women and minors everywhere are probably using this DellConnect service, and this guy could be a predator," she said, not unreasonably, seeing as how Jack's email mentioned her daughter. Gore doesn't have a daughter - which raised her suspicion that the email was a cut-and-paste job, and one of many that busy Jack had been gifting to Dell owners worldwide.

Gore also called Dell, where she worked her way up the managerial ladder through India and Malaysia until she found a woman who could help her get rid of not only her personal-mammarian wallpaper, but also four email messages that Jack had sent her. That helpful manager also told her that Jack was "one of our best" techs - although best at exactly what may not have been discussed. ®
