Verizon moves to thwart illicit info acquisition by investigative company

Verizon, one of the largest wireless service providers in the United States, has obtained a court injunction to prevent Global Information Group Inc. from seeking customer information under false pretenses. Though the ComputerWorld article does not go into details, I have a hunch that this is part of the hubub about companies that claim to sell cellular records (See: The Canadian Privacy Law Blog: Online Data Gets Personal: Cell Phone Records for Sale). Check out the ComputerWorld article: Verizon moves to thwart ID theft by Fla. investigative firm - Computerworld.
