Unwanted purchases

3 March 2008

According to this BBC story, a laptop bought from eBay contained a confidential CD from the Home Office, jammed between the keyboard and circuit board.

The Home Office said there was nothing to worry about, as the CD had been encrypted. But it got us wondering whether any SM readers have had unwanted extras to accompany their purchases.

Have you ever (quite literally) got more than you bargained for?
