Is Stan Bubrouski reading your text messages?


A recent SMS fiasco of our own reminded us that those text messages don't always make it to their intended recipient, and it sounds like a certain Stan Bubrouski could be reading a few of those transmissions at this very moment. Seems that since he set his Verizon username as "null" back in 2001, he's been receiving a whole bunch of messages not quite intended for him, including everything from "call mom," to school grades, to massive tests by OnStar and ESPN. Supposedly Verizon is now looking into the issue, and none to soon now that Stan is getting SSNs and credit card info, a sign of the increased use of the not so reliable tech.
