UK teenager behind cybercrimewave to face prison spell

Nick Webber, 19, and a few mates were behind GhostMarket.net - a carding forum with 8,000 members that sold stolen credit card numbers and passwords for a few dollars each. They also discussed how to defraud banks online.
Naughty Nick was nabbed with 100,000 credit card details on his computer.

Wow, and the guy just admits to everything online:

You've got to wonder how people that stupid were allowed to continue stealing until they'd taken $18 million US dollars. They weren't being stealthy. The guy registered a ZeuS domain with his own credit card. If someone had bothered to intervene when he started, he could possibly be getting out of reform school for a juvenile offense with a clean slate right about now and a lot of people would still have their money in their bank accounts. It's like the police wanted to wait until he was 18 and they could try him as an adult.
