Circuit City Says There Should Be No Expectation Of Privacy

As if I needed another reason not to do business at Circuit City, I stumble across this article. The story goes like this:
A woman takes her old computer into Circuit City when buying a new one and askes to have her files transfered to disk. The wonderful employees transfer her files to a floor model computer for some reason and then never delete the files. Mind you that these files contain names, addresses, phone numbers, SS#, DOB, place of work, salary information, tax documents, pictures, email, etc. The floor model eventually gets sold – with all of her files still on it. Circuit city of course says it was her fault for having personal information on her computer in the first place and that there should be no expectation of privacy.
