T-Mobile employee allegedly steals sex video from customer's phone


Here's a story you're not likely to hear T-Mobile CEO John Legere talk about, at least not on social media. According to WFTS-TV, a 25-year old T-Mobile employee in Pinellas Park, Florida named Roberto Sanchez-Ramos was arrested this past Friday. Ramos allegedly found a sex video on a customer's phone and sent it to his own personal email account. The customer, who had given her phone to Ramos to reboot and reactivate, noticed that her email account was accessed and that the picture was sent to the rep's email address.

Ramos was busted and charged with offenses against computer users and scheme to defraud. He is being held on $10,000 bond. And this is not Ramos' first arrest while wearing the T-Mobile magenta. Last year, Ramos pleaded guilty to a felony charge to defraud by artificially inflating his T-Mobile sales commission. He was given 18-months probation and ordered to reimburse the carrier by $200. He has now violated the terms of that probation with Friday's incident.

Prior to his T-Mobile-related crimes, Ramos had been charged with grand theft in relation to a 2013 arrest. That charge was dismissed after he was placed in a pre-trial intervention program for first-time offenders.

We understand the carrier's wish to give someone a second chance in life. But in a business that deals with consumers in person, there should be a zero-tolerance policy. It is a little late, but we hope that if it can be proven that Ramos did indeed commit the act he is charged with, he receives a pink (not magenta) slip from T-Mobile and is not allowed to come back.
