Seattle Man Arrested in P2P-Based Identity Theft Case
CNET has the story on a man up on federal charges for identity theft in conjunction with the use of peer-to-peer networks as a source for identity documents. One Gregory Kopiloff allegedly trolled the Lime Wire peers for documents with sensitive information. Once found these documents were used for information to open credit accounts which in turn were used to purchase items eventually resold. The take was about $70,000 before Kopiloff was caught and charged. Read more here from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
