Mysterious Fake Mobile Phone Towers Discovered

Labor Dept. Asks Communication Companies For Increased Safety Training For Cell Tower Workers

Now why would someone want to erect fake cell phone towers across the United States? Who would have the money, and the manpower to do so? Who owns them? Who is using them to track your calls?

These are just a few of the questions Les Goldsmith chief executive of the security company  ESD America wants answered.

Talking to Popular Science magazine Mr Goldsmith said:

“One of our customers took a road trip from Florida to North Carolina and he found eight different interceptors on that trip. We even found one at a casino in Las Vegas.”

“What we find suspicious is that a lot of these interceptors are right on top of US military bases,”

“So we begin to wonder – are some of them US government interceptors? Or are some of them Chinese interceptors?

“Whose interceptor is it? Who are they, that’s listening to calls around military bases? Is it just the US military, or are they foreign governments doing it? The point is: we don’t really know whose they are.”

According to Sky News US:

They were discovered by people using a heavily customised Android device called the CryptoPhone 500.

It uses a secure version of the software which can tell if the phone is being subjected to what is known as a baseband attack.

It is then possible to trace the location of the offending tower.

The fake cell towers were detected in July, but the report states there could be more.

    It really shouldn’t be that tough to find out who the towers belong to, you can’t just stick a tower anywhere, either have to buy or lease the land that requires public records!

    When coverage is as crap as it usually is I would appreciate a few more WORKING towers to keep me connected. Surely this is not too difficult a request when I’m about to check an email and update my status on Facebook, grrr!

    False flag my friend. The next FF will not be a tumbling skyscraper, no it will be an internet offline for a complete day or 2. Blamed on ISIS which is a pretext for getting us all to wear microphones which transmit our every word to the cloud just to spot who is getting radicalized and prevent the next gee had John. The ifone may already do this anyway. BTW no microphone can prevent the next Woolwich or Boston. But it wont stop control freaks from trying.
    So help me God.
