Best Buy corporate communications responded to HD GuruÃ¢â‚¬â„¢sÃ‚Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“HackÃ¢â‚¬Â post involving a Texan’s phone number and address appearing as the “ship to” information in his Best Buy password protected on-line account (link).
According to the Best Buy spokesperson, the information had been altered during a 2009 system test at the behest of HD Guru but due to a phone representativeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s error had not been switched back to the correct information.
The spokesman said Best BuyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s investigation revealed this had occurred back in 2009 when I had a problem ordering a laptop for home delivery.
This would be completely plausible, if I had indeed order a laptop for home delivery from Best Buy in 2009.
However, I have never ordered a laptop or any item ever for home delivery from Best Buy, so the hacking issue remains open.
Have a question for the HD Guru?
