Ex-Verizon Wireless Employee Stole Minutes... Many, Many Minutes
from the quite-a-racket dept
An ex-Verizon Wireless employee has been charged with stealing and reselling $20 million worth of prepaid cellular minutes. Since the minutes were activated via the numbers on some cards, he just copied down all the numbers. Interestingly, while the report says he stole $20 million worth of minutes, there's no indication how much he actually sold them for (or how many were actually used). Also, he continued to have access to the computer which stored the numbers after he left Verizon, which sounds like a major security screwup on Verizon Wireless' part.
