Verizon admits: some of our employees have accessed Barack Obama’s personal cell phone account without authorization
Verizon Wireless, North America’s soon to be No. 1 mobile carrier, has issued a short press release which announces that a personal cell phone account of Barack Obama, USA’s President-Elect, has been accessed, without authorization, by several Verizon employees.
The account is for a simple voice flip phone (hence not for a smartphone) and, luckily, it has been inactive for more than one month.
Lowell McAdam, Verizon’s CEO, says that all the employees who have accessed Obama’s account were “put on leave”. However, those of them who prove they had legitimate business needs to take a peek at the account will be returned to their positions in the company.
Obviously, Verizon has also publicly apologized to Barack Obama and said that it will keep on working in order not to lose their customers’ trust.
