Stingray

Is someone listening to your cell phone conversations and reading your text messages? Probably.

Is it the NSA?

Nope. The NSA doesn't give a damn about what you have to say. It's the juvenile delinquent down the street who is invading your privacy. 

"Stingray" is a brand name of the Harris Corporation for an electronic device that intercepts cell phone voice, text and data communications, including email. First, it was available only to law enforcement, and it was very expensive. Now, your next door electronics nerd can build one fairly inexpensively.

One site claims that a Do-It-Yourself cell phone catcher can be constructed for $20.

It's illegal and merely possessing one of these devices will land you in jail . . . if you are caught.
