Phone records for sale!
Did you know your cell phone and land line phone records are public – for sale? Your unlisted phone number is not fool-proof for preventing unwanted phone calls, from telemarketers to old flames! If there is somebody out there who’s determined to get it and is willing to pay for it, they will obtain it.
How about your financial records. Those can be had for a price too by the wrong people.
According to an AP study, there are about 40 websites on the net who are in the business of selling cell phone numbers, unlisted numbers and phone call records. This can be done by somebody outside law enforcement, and accordingly without a search warrant or court approval.
This is an egregious invasion of your privacy, but unfortunately it’s all too easy.
