Comments: Identity 7, watchlist error rate, $300 to get off the watchlist

"Sure. But the NSA are not using the databases to find terrorists. Instead, when other leads come in, they look to see what they have in their databases -- to add to the lead they already have. Simple. With this strategy, clearly, the more data, the more databases, the better this works."

The above just doesn't wash iang. If they have a reasonable suspicion they can get a court order and subsequently access to the records.

The databases exists whether they have managed to steal them or not. They can have access to them whether or not they have them in house BUT they must have a reasonable suspicion to obtain access if they haven't stolen the databases.

This suggests that they have no reasonable suspicion, with respect to illegality, about the records that they are violating.

"...it doesn't seem a strategy that we'd emulated in FC."

Isn't this basically how PayPal detects fraud?
