There is a black market offering deeply personal information on people in China, and all you need is $ 30 and their phone number to check up on someone.

Chinese state broadcaster CCTV has uncovered a mine of personal data on social media offering up shockingly detailed information such as people’s identity card numbers, home addresses, and even live location data, based off their phones.

Access to an individual’s records costs between 20 yuan ($ 2.90), and deeper level information goes up to just 220 yuan ($ 32).

CCTV screengrabbed a list of information that could be purchased, including a person's Alipay account number, property holdings, travel records, including hotel records, and even location.
