Verizon Employee Illegally Sold Customer Information

Not only did this Verizon employee sell customer information to a private investigator, he earned as little as $50 a month to do so in the beginning. By the time dude was busted, he was earning $750 a month selling customer information. frown

Traeger allegedly accessed Verizon’s computer network to obtain call records and location data for the investigator, while being fully aware that he was not allowed to do so. In return, the P.I. paid him a monthly fee of $50. By 2013, prosecutors say that rate had been bumped up to $750/month. In total, the defendant earned more than $10,000 from selling this information.
