Last week in Arkansas, Mark Anthony Townsend and Joshua Alan Tabor were charged for allegedly helping suspicious lovers secure their partners’ e-mail passwords. The two men are said to have created a site called Needapassword.com that obtains passwords from a target for a fee from $50 to $300.
The site has allegedly procured 6,000 passwords and passed them on to the paying customers. There is a version of the site here.
Both Townsend and Tabor were charged with a felony violation that carries a maximum penalty of 5 years in prison.
The police however, are not satisfied with merely going after the creators of the site. The Authorities are also going after people who pay money to utilize the service and spy on others, the most common type of customer to the site was a jilted lover, so presumably the customer was spying on someone they knew.
So now not only do you have to be worried about Google and the government spying on you, if you have any crazed figures in your past you may have to worry about them too.
