    Obviously some items can be used by a criminal, and my email address might be listed for huge quantities of spam, but what "legitimate" use is there for the info?

    But the illegal uses are the primary income.

    @ Slayer_ : You are so full of the brown stuff that we excrete each day that it spills over is each word thats come out of you...what will India and China do with your worthless, bankrupt *** data anyways???!! When was the last time you had an Indian or Chinese company call you to sell a product?? It is your own corporates that sell their business processes to other countries in order to save money, fuel their greed or just stay in business. They make the calls...to sell their products. They make money, save on taxes and make your TV soap opera inspired lives real...so that you can get your diet coke with a double cheeseburger and large fries and still get access to healthcare! Criminals (and illiterate, ignorant morons like you) exist in every society and do not conform to any particular country, race, religion or complexion...so go and get some education or atleast watch NatGeo / Discovery before you comment on something you don't know anything about!

    @ Everyone else: sorry, the blind comment by this genius made be rant about something that has nothing to do with the question...apologies to everyone else
