SMS harrassment on mass scale

01:28 Feb 14 2013 Pakistan

Description
Women in Pakistan face harassing sms and phone calls in a constant torrent because their cell phone numbers have somehow been made publicly available to men "looking for friendship". Although telcos have privacy policies and mechanisms to report abuse, clearly selling women's private phone information is big business, possibly for telco employees. Should telco's be held responsible?
