Best Buy story

by austdo / August 16, 2006 2:24 AM PDT

I remember hearing a story on BoL awhile back about someone taking their computer to "recycle" (or something) at Best Buy, and then their harddrive showed up somewhere else, and the person contacted them asking them if they wanted it back.

If anyone knows what I'm talking about, is there a link to this story?

Wouldn't bode too well for Best Buy to have multiple incidents like this.
