NSA Wiretap Trap: Don't Pay Your Phone Bill

If you think you're getting tapped, here's one way to find out. Don't pay your phone bill for a while and see if your phone service is disconnected. If it is, you might not be under surveillance. If it's not cut off, say hey to the NSA.

"Here's one more tidbit on wire-taps: They get you free phone service! The feds
tapped the phone of the Sisters of Mercy in Washington D.C. because of some
anti-war stance or something they took in the 1980s. The good sisters noticed
some kind of clicking on the phone at times, and finally decided that someone
must have tapped into their phone. Their solution: Don't pay the bill so the
phone company will have to shut off the phone. The phone never went dead, and
they quit sending them bills! The Feds wouldn't let Ma Bell shut them down, and
probably began paying the bills. The sisters talked long and free with their
friends across the country!"
