NetworkWorld: The Federal Trade Commission has filed a civil lawsuit against a gang accused of stealing millions of dollars--pennies at a time. The scam, which has reportedly been ongoing for more than four years, charged amounts between $.25 and $9 to U.S. credit cards. 94 percent of the time, the credit card owners did not contest the charges.
"It was a very patient scam," said the FTC's Steve Wernikoff. "The people who are behind this are very meticulous."
