Trac Phones = Terrorism?
Like this post?
Okay, so weird thread title, I know. But apparently there have been several accounts of Trac Phones being used to communicate throughout the terrorist network. My boyfriend's interest was sparked last night when we witnessed a rather odd event. We were at a Wal-Mart, buying a few groceries (yes yes, I know, Wal-Mart's evil, but it's hard to find groceries at midnight elsewhere). While standing in line at the express checkout, two guys in front of us were trying to buy a crapton of Trac Phones (like 30 a piece). Apparently Wal-Mart has a 3 phones per person limit and these guys were NOT happy about it. The first relented and got his 3 and went out to the parking lot while the other stayed behind and argued with the poor cashier and her supervisor. Apparently security was called and we were helped by another cashier and left before anything interesting started happening.
It was really amusing, though, and my boyfriend, our friend that went with us, and I started making theories on why someone would need so many pre-paid phones. My only thought was maybe they were coaches of something and wanted the whole team to have phones to contact each other? Yeah, I always try to see the best in situations, lol. But when the terrorist idea was just thrown out there, it sparked some interest. Admittedly, it was a bit stereotypical linking Middle Eastern guys buying lots of cell phones to terrorism, but Daniel's been searching for stories online and apparently there's been a few cases of suspected terrorism linked to Trac Phones.
Just thought I'd share my little story and see if anyone else has heard anything of the sort. I find it really fuinny, but kind of creepy at the same time...
