Boost Mobile asking personal questions
In order to use a credit card to reboost from online, Boost mobile states (on their site):
***You'll probably be asked to answer some questions to verify that you're the owner of the credit card. They may sound like personal questions, but they're taken from public records (such as county or city records) and only you would know the answers.*****
If this is *public* information, I should be able to get access to it, right??
If you have to *pay* for this info (ie..a people find site), does that mean it's *not* public???
I need to know this before I call them, or before I inquire at the FCC about this.

Re: Boost Mobile asking personal questions
The availability of for-a-fee services that give access to public information does not mean that the information they provide is not public. It simply means that they are doing the leg work for their clients (assembling the public information) and providing it to them (the reports containing the public information). And, to answer your first question, you can get access to any public information: that is the essence of "public" information.
