A Phisher Goes To The Slammer


According to this article in the Mercury News in the US, Jeffrey Brett Goodin, 45, of Azusa, has been found guilty of running a phishing operation aimed at AOL users.

He might get 101 years in jail. That is too much, but even five would be enough deterrent for citizens of responsible countries.

But I don't give much hope, that other countries will apply the same rules to their own Internet crooks.
