Germans Arrested In Phishing Scam

from the small-potatos dept

German police have apparently arrested a group of people involved in a phishing scam. It’s definitely good to see that the police are paying attention to phishing being a serious issue, but you have to wonder if this will really make a difference at all. From the sound of it, this was a small time phishing operation, only pulling in 30,000 euros. Hopefully this is just one step towards going after bigger and bigger phishers.
