Police seek help in hacking case 


Speaking generally and without any reference to this case, Detective
Culshaw said the squad dealt with cases of fraud, particularly the misuse
of credit cards. 

He said up to $10 million had been lost by Internet service providers due
to credit card fraud, where bogus credit card numbers were used to attain
Internet accounts. 

Fraudulent users then ran up the hourly and data charges to hefty bills -
some as much as $16,000, he said.
