HACKER TRIES TO SELL STOLEN CREDIT CARD NUMBERS TO THE FBI

By CBR Staff Writer

A Daly City, California hacker faces 15 years in prison and fines of $500,000 if he is found guilty of accumulating some 100,000 credit card numbers stolen from the internet. 36-year-old Carlos Felipe Salgado Jr was caught out by the FBI when he tried to sell stolen numbers to an undercover FBI agent. His arrest marks the first of its kind where an individual has been accused of trafficking stolen credit card information over the internet. Salgado has been released on $100,000 bail and ordered to scrap his computer gear.
