New York, NY (PRWEB) August 23, 2006
SpoofCard.com, a provider of enhanced calling card services, announced today that it had terminated the accounts of more than 50 customers who used the SpoofCard service to obtain unauthorized access to voicemail accounts on a national mobile telephone network. Many of the terminated customers and the victims whose mailboxes were accessed are well known celebrities.
SpoofCard.com confirmed that well known celebrities were both among the terminated customers and among those whose voicemail accounts were broken into. SpoofCard has put software controls on its network so that customers can no longer use its service to break into other voicemail boxes.
SpoofCard.com discovered the conduct while reviewing its customer call records for evidence of fraud and other prohibited conduct. The company is publicly announcing its action in order to discourage this type of activity and to alert mobile telephone networks and their customers of the need to protect voicemail access with passwords and other security measures.
SpoofCard.com is committed to working with law enforcement and industry groups to end harassing and illegal use of caller ID spoofing technology. In this case, it will cooperate with any law enforcement inquiry into possible violations of the Federal Stored Wire and Electronic Communications Act involving unauthorized access to voicemail boxes.
