    Gloria Allred is all over it. I wonder if the settlement will be in cash and Toyota vehicles. I think I'd be rollin in Land Cruisers for life...

    That's sick. I don't keep anything like that on my phone, but if I did, I wouldn't give it to anyone. It's happened to me where I bought a new phone and the cell phone company employee took my phone, then went in the back room with it, then came back out and did what he needed to at the counter.

    Why even bring it back there?

    If I worked for a news station I would do a show where you have a good looking girl goto a kiosk with a phone issue, but have the front facing camera streaming and something to monitor what is being looked at.

    I'd probably just make sure my name went on the dealership sign.

    They have an app that can put photos or any type of file into a secure container (secure area on you device). I would be pissed, but again I wouldn't keep those types of images on my phone anyways. There are sick people in any profession.

    Well, to be fair, don't give your phone to anyone. This cockroach just happened to work at a toyota dealership, but he was likely a cockroach long before he was hired by them.

    Shh... In all seriousness, we don't go through phones other than to check settings for BlueTooth concerns. At least, I don't. Lawsuits aren't the only reason for avoiding situations like this.

    Edit: Customer's are more than welcome to be present at any time while their phone is in use. This falls into the same category as leaving all loose change in the cup holder if found while working on a vehicle. It's not about getting caught. Its just the right thing to do.

    That's some shit breach of trust there.
    Dislike people who use their positions to their advantage.

    That's why I'm more like a missionary in that way.

    This is the dealership I bought my Tacoma from... It was sold back to Toyota under the lemon law. It's not an "official" Toyota dealership.

    All kinds of scumbags out there!

    Crazy. Yea never giving my phone to anyone unless i am right there watching what they are viewing, clicking on. Especially since i have a case that holds my credit card and insurance info.
    Have to bring it behind the desk. Well guess i will have to follow you behind the desk.
    Ask to borrow my phone for a call, sorry no thanks. Don't want you to run away with it.
