Outcry Over Sale Of Cell Phone Calling Records

Posted on Wednesday, January 18 at 12:15 by jensonj
Joaquin Carbonell, Cingular's executive vice-president and general counsel, said the company "will not tolerate the theft of customer records." Cingular spokesman Mark Siegel told ConsumerAffairs.Com that the company "will continue to ratchet up its efforts to increase security and protect its customers' privacy." Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) called on the Federal Communications Commission to investigate how third party companies are gaining access to individual phone records, while Sen. Charles Schumer plans to introduce legislation that will make any sale of cell phone records for "unlawful" purposes a federal crime. http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2006/01/wireless_calling_records.html
