Cybercrime unit founder victim of ID theft June 26, 2008Posted by cyberpatrol in cybercrime.
Jack Conway, who created a special unit to fight cybercrime, has become the victim of identity theft.
Conway tried to buy some music on Itunes but the glorious Apple empire declared that he didn’t live at his home any more.
After an investigation, Conway discovered someone had stolen his credit card number and charged thousands of dollars worth of computers, Vonage phone service and postal service charges to it. The ID thieves also changed his billing address.
Unfortunately for the thieves, they might have picked the wrong bloke to hack off.
The cybercrime unit he created will almost certainly make it a top priority to arrest someone. Anyone they catch will almost certainly never be able to cop a plea to anything short of a long stretch in the worst prison in the State. µ
