Situation: Used car dealer kept fixing my car for 8 months without contacting me. So I hounded them over the phone and copped some abuse so I started voice recording every phone conversation in the hopes that I could take it to court and use it as evidence of abuse and their unwillingness to help me out. Is it illegal to record phone conversations on your mobile phone with a business with which you are having serious problems? Also, is it illegal to record a conversation using your phone of a meeting that took place in person? Apparently, the laws are very vague and in some cases it is illegal, some cases it is up to the discretion of the judge and in others it is legal. So what is it?
