Two sentenced in Italy for massive phishing operation
Two people have been sentenced for their participation in a massive phishing operation busted up by Italian authorities in July. Sorin Pascu, 22, of Romania, was sentenced to five and a half years, and Marius Braditeanu, head of the scam, was sentenced to six years.
Police arrested 18 Italians and eight other Eastern Europeans in July. The country's financial police, the Guardia di Finanza, said the scam involved sending fraudulent e-mails that appeared to come from Poste Italiane, the country's postal operator, which also offers bank accounts, insurance and loans.
