Japanese 'Yahoo! phisher' arrested
Japanese police today arrested a man from Osaka who allegedly ran an Internet phishing scam based around a site called Yafoo.
The Yafoo site was, reportedly, almost identical to the popular Yahoo auction site. According to The Asahi Shimbun the man wasn't nabbed for tricking internet users into providing personal information, but - believe it or not - for violating the Copyright Law.
