Teen's mobe loaded with X-rated smut
CpW repair job ends in couples on the job
An 18-year-old Coventry lass has been left "angry", "horrified", "shocked" and "deeply traumatised" after Carphone Warehouse returned her repaired mobile loaded with hardcore porn.
Lauren Kennedy, 18, packed off her Nokia for remedial treatment earlier this month when "it kept cutting out during phone calls", the Sun explains.
When it came back, it boasted "ten videos ranging from five to ten minutes" featuring "saucy romps, group sex and women touching themselves". Also on offer were "images of women in sexy undies", which were like the vids transferred to the device via Bluetooth.
Shaken student Lauren said: "I think it's revolting that somebody has had their filthy paws all over my mobile phone. The people had recorded themselves doing everything.
"There were clips of couples having sex in the toilet, in the bathroom and having group sex in the bedroom. You can only see the women and not the person who's recording it, but you can hear him egging them on in a sleazy voice."
To add to the outrage, a call to Carphone Warehouse's customer services earned Kennedy a paltry 10 quid compensation offer. She indignated: "I felt sick when I saw the videos and was even more insulted when they offered just £10 in compensation. I told them they were incredibly lucky I wasn't a really young kid. For all they know I could be eight or nine years old.
"What if one of my two younger brothers had turned the phone on and found those images? It makes me feel sick."
A Carphone Warehouse spokesman offered: "We are investigating this issue as a matter of urgency. We apologise to Lauren Kennedy and her family for any offence that may have been caused and have replaced the phone with a brand new BlackBerry Curve."
Regular readers will doubtless be reminded of the 2008 Oz mobe porn scandal, in which Dick Smith Electronics punted some quality pre-loaded filth to a Cairns university student, including snaps of "a woman naked from the waist down lying on a bed performing a sex act, a man holding his penis and consecutive shots of the woman in her bra and pulling her pants down".
The company unwisely declined to offer the poor girl adequate recompense for the trauma, and she quickly threatened to eBay it - complete with the offending material. ®
but I would be shocked if someone put stuff like this on my phone. Not because I would be shocked by the pics themselves (necessarily), but by the fact that someone put unwanted stuff on my phone AT ALL. By the same token, they might have enlisted you for all sorts of nasty (costly) subscriptions to unwanted services, or all sorts of spyware.
I am afraid I must resort to the use of the FAIL icon for the first time
Complaining about filth and then talking to the sexist/racist Sun?
"I felt sick when I saw the videos"
We can assume from that and other comments that she watched all the videos. Surely if she was that upset by the videos she'd have stopped after a few seconds of the first? The fact that she had the stomach to watch all of them suggests that she wasn't that upset by them. If she decides to sue I'll bet that's the line the defence will be taking.
