I'm surprised I was not notified of the policy and subsequent action to record and give away my phone communications. Normally when national policy decisions, no matter how grotesque, force businesses to change their customer contracts (credit cards) a notice is given and adequate time allowed for the customer to respond.
When will Verizon provide details on which communications were recorded and handed over? When will Verizon inform it's customers of the actions it was apparently forced to take?
They never will. They were prohibited from acknowledging it in the FISA court order. This court order had the highest top top secret clearance marking on it. They can also lawfully deny the existence of it. I kid you not.
I'm curious if VZW nullified it's own contract by not stating in fine print that they will monitor and record my conversations. At some point they will have to issue a public statement to their customers if they want to keep any of them around.
This is a violation of the contract no matter how it happened. Verizon made me sign a contract with strict detail to conditions and now they violated my privacy without me knowing. It doesnt matter if it is a court order , NSA secret crap , or whatever. They will have to let us cancel without penalty. They were the only carrier targeted and i regret using them now.
Per Fox News today: "The National Security Agency's seizure and surveillance of VIRTUALLY ALL of Verizon's phone customers is an astounding assault on the Constitution," Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said.
One civil liberties group called this the "broadest surveillance order to ever have been issued."
"It requires no level of suspicion and APPLIES TO ALL Verizon subscribers anywhere in the U.S.," the Center for Constitutional Rights said in a statement.
Wrong. And they all are providing the NSA with the information. You cannot break a contract under this data mining operation. Nice try though. Been giving the info since 2006. Just pay your bill and relax. http://www22.verizon.com/about/privacy/policy/#insideVz
