A 21 year old man received a 14 year prison sentenced on Friday for running an online business that sold counterfeit credit cards encoded with stolen account information with losses estimated at more than $3 million.

Tony Perez was a frequent visitor to carding forums where like-minded people meet online to buy and sell stolen financial account information and other goods and services that promote credit card fraud.
