Twenty-seven year old Kenneth Joseph Lucas II, from Los Angeles California, was sentenced to an eleven year term for his role in an international phishing ring which included as many as one hundred American and Egyptian participants. Lucas was one of three accused ring-leaders in an international crime ring which used phishing attacks to steal money from bank accounts and transfer funds overseas. Lucas, who was twenty-five at the time of his October 2009 arrest, plead guilty to several counts which could have led to significantly more time in prison. Conspiracy to commit bank fraud and wire fraud, which is one of the charges filed against him, carries up to a twenty year sentence by itself.
I'd like to add that AllSpammedUp has greatly improved their writing staff. Good to see.
