I just took action on to protect the privacy of our cell phone records.
Unscrupulous companies are offering to sell your detailed cell phone records--who you called, their number, how long you talked, and when--to anyone willing to pay them $100. How? They call your cell phone carrier and pretend to be you--something known as "pretexting." And cell phone companies aren't doing enough to keep your information safe.
Consumers Union wants Congress to take a hard stance against this practice. Congress should make it illegal for anyone to buy or sell your phone records or pretend to be you in order to access those records and other private information your cell phone company may have. And Congress should require cell phone companies to do more to safeguard your phone records and prohibit them from giving anyone your information without your express permission.
Tell Congress to protect your personal information! Just go to http://cu.convio.net/site/Advocacy?id=839
