UK Identity Thieves Sent To Jail

A bunch of scammers caught running an identity theft scam have been put in jail in the UK. The interesting thing, though, is in how the scam worked. They used the internet to monitor home auctions to learn about people who had recently passed away, and then forged documents pretending to be those people. Unfortunately, the article doesn’t indicate how the police eventually tracked them down.
