My question was similar to this one. I got an email from my daughter's father telling me that he used his cell phone to record a 4.5 hour phone conversation we had. He said he knew it was illegal to do so and he did it anyway. This conversation was very private and we discussed personal financial information as well as information regarding the custody and well being of our child. In the email he sent me confessing this, he also states that he is going to play this recording to "everyone." I know he cannot use the recording against me in court since I had no idea he recorded me(he told me 5 months after the phone conversation happened). There is nothing illegal discussed, but there is a lot of very private personal information we discussed that I don't want others knowing. I feel violated that he even did it and it and it doesn't seem right that it was illegal, he admitted that he knew it was illegal, yet he still gets away with it. When the conversation happened, He was in Florida and I was in PA and it happened over a cell phone. Five months later, he emailed me telling me that he had recorded the whole conversation and that he was going to play it for others(I saved this email). Is this something I could take to my local FBI office(I live in Philadelphia), or is this something that is probably not worth pursuing?
