When I posted an article about NSA spying and overhearing about 540 Millions Conversations a month, at the back of my mind was the thought, if this were true, there should be people/companies making money out of this.
Yes, I found this out from Pando.-Link provided at the close of this post.
The people who over hear or steal our information, from land Lines, Cell phones, Internet, either by way of advertising solicitations, Tele-calling or simple phishing, they sell this information.
Even giants like Google and Facebook do sell, though they do not admit it in so many words.
Some companies who collect this information call themselves Data Brokers.
They sell this information.
The market? $150 billions.
