I had traded in my I Phone for credit when upgrading my plan . They ship those trade ins to a recycling company . The store claims that they wiped all the data out of my phone , but I did not witness it . Approx 30 - 45 minutes after the phone was picked up by the shipping company , my Face book and email accounts were accessed to send Spam to most of my contacts . Also , some contacts on my phone got suspicious text messages from that I Phone . My email contained correspondence from my bank and credit card companies as well as some bookkeeping records . I am concerned that through negligence / intentional actions , both parties have exposed me to identity theft and financial loss . These events occurred in NJ , on Monday the 25th . I plan on contacting law enforcement soon .
