In 2005, a military member used his first day of access to run six e-mail addresses belonging to an ex-girlfriend.

When she was asked about it, she claimed it was her practice to query the phone numbers of people she met socially to make sure she wasn’t talking to “shady characters.” (Because you wouldn’t want that.)
In case you were wondering, "[s]ome of the abuses were referred to the Department of Justice, but none resulted in prosecution."
