The Verizon Wireless employees who breached the cell phone records of President-elect Barack Obama, have been fired according to reports from company management.
It seems the employees were hired to do customer care and authorized to access customer records unless specifcally directed by the customer.
Verizon management really had no choice in this matter if they were to retain customer confidence. It was also reiterated that the cell phone records compromised were for a simple flip phone and not for Obama's Blackberry or other sophisticated equipment. No e-mails or voice messages were accessed.
