Company Says Hilton's a Hacker...Lohan a Victim ?

8/23/2006 2:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton was recently terminated from her SpoofCard account for allegedly breaking into unauthorized voice mail boxes. SpoofCard calling cards offer the ability to change what someone sees on their caller ID display when they receive a phone call.

SpoofCard announced today that it had terminated the accounts of more than 50 customers, including Paris Hilton, who they claim used the SpoofCard service to obtain unauthorized access to voice mail accounts on a national mobile telephone network. Many of the terminated customers and the victims whose mailboxes were accessed are well-known celebrities, including Lindsay Lohan.



TMZ spoke with SpoofCard attorney Mark Del Bianco and he stated that "Paris was entering unauthorized [voice] mail boxes." When asked about Lindsay, he told us, "A number of the 50 persons [who were canceled by Spoofcard] were making unauthorized entrances to Miss Lohan's voice mail." A source close to the scandal also told TMZ that Nicky Hilton and Paris' ex-boyfriend Stavros Niarchos may have been involved.

TMZ contacted Leslie Sloane Zelnick, rep for Lindsay, who would only say "I have turned this matter over to Lindsay's lawyers."

Paris' rep Elliot Mintz told TMZ "I read the original release from Spoofcard and I read the quote given to TMZ by Mr. Del Bianco. A close reading of the press release and the comments do not accuse Paris of violating Lindsay's voice mail. She has not been accused of that. I find the statements by Spoofcard to be somewhat ambiguous and misleading. Also, historically, I can't think of anyone in America who has suffered more public humiliation over the invasion of her privacy as it pertains to communications devices than Paris Hilton."

SpoofCard discovered the activity while reviewing its customer call records for evidence of fraud and other prohibited conduct. The company is publicly announcing its action in order to discourage this type of activity and to alert mobile telephone networks and their customers to the need to protect voice mail access with passwords. SpoofCard has put software controls on its network so that customers can no longer use its service to break into the voice mail boxes of victims it has identified. In this case, Spoofcard told TMZ that it will cooperate with any law enforcement inquiry into possible violations of the Federal Stored Wire and Electronic Communications Act involving unauthorized access to voice mail boxes.

This cyber fued between the girls started last month, when Page Six ran an item that indicated the password to Lindsay's Blackberry had been leaked. Her rep told Page Six people were sending "disgusting and very mean messages that everyone thought were coming from Lindsay. They weren't. We now have her lawyers looking into it. Some people think Paris may have been involved because the wording of the messages sounds very familiar."

Elliot Mintz, Hilton's rep, denied his clients involvement and said "I'm saddened this happened to Lindsay. I lived through this with Paris two years ago when her Sidekick was hacked into, and the loss of privacy is unbearable. But as for any suggestion that Paris would have anything to do with this, that is silly, untrue and unfortunate."

Paris: Grow the hell up-Get your head out of your a$$ !! Lindsay made a name for herself...you didnt...everything you have was given to you because of your last name....how sad..... you are a spoiled litte brat, Paris. Face it. Lindsay worked for what she's got. Stop hating. Life is too short to be acting the way you are. I would be soo ashamed to have you as a daughter. Your parents must be sooo sick of you!! Do you feel that inadequate that you have to try to ruin Lindsay's life??!!?? You find pleasure out of other peoples misery. Sick. You need some serious Therapy, Paris !! Now, If I were Lindsay, I would sue Paris for every dime she's got...I would even take little ol' Tinkerbell. LOL. Looking at what people have written about you Paris, doesn't it make you want to change? No one likes you Paris. Hmmm....have you wondered why?? We're all not crazy. I think you're a little cracked Miss Hilton. Get some help. You really need it.

I am so sick of these two whores, I want to throw up. Why is it that Lindsey can get into all these clubs while she is underage? The only thing I liked her in was the Parent Trap, but she was younger back then, and I hope not a slut yet. Another whore who will screw anyone and everyone. And her mother defends her. Another wannabe like Kathy Hilton. Have either one of their mother's ever
hear the word "Parenting". Or did their nannies not tell them anything.

If I ever had a porno movie of myself (which I never would) like Paris did at such a young age, my Mom would have beat the shit out of me.

Dina and Kathy, parents do not let their underage children drink, they do not allow them to have sex, parents teach their children values, parents teach their children right from wrong. Parents teach their children about AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.

Could it be that Kathy and Dina are wannabe whores, who live vicariously through their children.

Do all these rich bitches realize they are ruining society and these little whores they brought into this world are our future. I only hope I die before I see that.

Just because you are rich does not make you morally acceptable. If anything it makes you crazy.

Whatever    

Paris is such long nosed witch bitch. She is seething with envy over Lohan's hot movie career. Think about it would Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline be in a movie with Paris? Hell no!

The only person PH cares about is PH. I am so sick of seeing the spoiled rotten little rich girl getting more money and more publicity. She wastes more money in one day than many of us make in a month. Who wants to be bombarded by more publicity about her?

All i have to say is Paris and Nicky Hilton should use some of that money to buy them class, If Nicole Richie did what they say she did to Paris, you go girl now i understand why, Paris deserves everything she has coming, she's not a very nice person.
