MS-NBC'I know who you called last month'. Web sites offer copies of phone records for about $100

Oct. 16 — How much would it cost someone to trace your movements all last month? About $100. Dozens of Web sites will sell a copy of anyone's cell phone bill or long distance calling bill. Armed with such a document, a stalker could observe your traveling patterns; a business competitor could contact all your customers; and anyone could find out who your friends are, where they are, and when you call them. It all has some privacy advocates worried that our telecommunications system has been turned into an exacting spy network open to anyone — including terrorists — with a few extra dollars and an axe to grind.
