If you’re concerned about the widespread domestic surveillance telephone companies, like Bellsouth, have performed on innocent Americans for the last five years, please contact the following folk:
- Rep. David Price – Contact.
- NC Utilities Commission – Contact.
- NC Attorney General – Contact.
- NC ACLU – Contact.
- National ACLU – Contact.
- Electionic Frontier Foundation (EFF) – Contact.
- Federal Trade Commission (FTC) – Contact.
- Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – Contact.
These companies violated not only their published privacy policies and federal statutes but are complicit in one the largest violations of our Constitutional rights in our history.
[ UPDATE #2: ] Bellsouth denies USA Today charge, claims no sharing of records.
In several reports, Bellsouth spokesman Jeff Battcher claims
Battcher said BellSouth’s customer service department had received only 26 complaints about reports that private phone records may have been relayed to the government.
26 sounds quite low, especially since I know 5 folk, including myself, that called when the story broke.
Verizon and ATT are still on the hook.[ UPDATE: ]
Call 404-249-2000, Bellsouth’s CEO Duane Ackerman’s office. Report Bellsouth’s violations of both their own corporate integrity, privacy and ethics policies AND their FCC regulatory and legal requirement to safeguard customer records.
