UPDATE: Would somebody "real" from Cingular please contact me by email, or phone since you have that already, so we can deal with this - I really don't want to have to go through ten different levels of your customer support 800 number tomorrow.
Then how did the company get my phone records and sell them online? If Cingular didn't release them, then it sounds like somebody broke the law, and if so, what is Cingular planning on doing about it? I think I'm gonna have me a little talk with them tomorrow.
An AMERICAblog reader sends me the response he got to Cingular when he wrote them about my Web site selling Cingular phone records for $110 a pop:
