Bill Banning Phone Record Sales in House


House panel approves bill banning sale of phone records so this looks like the beginning of the end for the practice of "pretexting" by underhanded online companies that sell phone records for about $100 to anyone with a credit card number. The services were used mostly by private detectives who discovered they could track their quarry by following the phone calls they made.

But once the phone number tracking service became public knowledge following a Chicago Sun Times article, outraged citizens and politicians leapt to stop the practice.
