For as little as $300, an investigative reporter was able to hire a bounty hunter to track down the exact location of his cell phone in real time. If you're wondering how this could possibly happen, the answer is simple ... because cell phone companies are selling this data, and it's being re-sold over and over again.
This incredible disregard for personal information could put your identity, your finances and even your safety in danger. Just imagine what a stalker, an abusive ex, or anyone with an ax to grind might do with this sensitive data.
Several senators have called for an investigation into this matter, but we all know that Ajit Pai and the telecom companies will be pushing hard to make sure that doesn't happen. So add your name to our petition and tell lawmakers: "My cell phone company should not be able to sell my location or my personal data. Congress and the FCC should investigate this immediately."
