] An America Online customer service rep illicitly surfs
] the company's customer database, ferrets out private data
] on celebrity members and then hunts them down online
] under a false identity, seeking fame and fortune in
] Hollywood.
] Sound like a prelude to prison? Not in the case of
] Heather Robinson. The former AOL employee managed to
] parlay privacy violations into useful contacts in
] Hollywood. With the help of those contacts, Robinson, 25,

] industry to advance another.
