Phishing Scammer Gets Seven Years
from the this-ought-to-make-some-folks-happy dept
People seem to get pretty excited whenever we have stories of spammers and scammers getting long jail sentences, so I'm sure plenty of folks will be happy to hear that a phishing scammer just got sentenced to seven years in prison. Considering that he was scamming people's passwords to use elsewhere, this seems a lot more reasonable than the folks who get long jail sentences just for spamming. But, with all of these stories about spammers and phishers getting convicted, it always seems like the punishment is rather arbitrary. There's no clear pattern at all.
