Billionaire Identity Theft

from the what's-a-missing-$1-million-here-or-there dept

Some internet fraudsters attempted some identity theft on a number of billionaires on the (possibly correct) assumption that they wouldn’t miss a million dollars here or there. They got caught, though, in trying to transfer $10 million in one shot. So, the trick is, if you want to scam billionaires out of their money, you have to take it in chunks of under $1 million at a time.
