Stories like this are of a concern, especially due to the press regarding the huge healthcare data base they have collected... and this causes them to lose evidence as well...and the last article I read Congress is still waiting for their update as well as not enough is known about what has been collected...oh well...hang on for the ride....BD 

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A telephone company cut off an FBI international wiretap after the agency failed to pay its bill on time, according to a U.S. government audit released on Thursday.  "Late payments have resulted in telecommunications carriers actually disconnecting phone lines established to deliver surveillance results to the FBI, resulting in lost evidence, including an instance where delivery of intercept information required by a ... FISA order was halted due to untimely payment," the audit said.

The Justice Department's inspector general faulted the FBI for poor handling of money used in undercover investigations, which it said made the agency vulnerable to theft and mishandled invoices.
