Three people recently received prison sentences for involvement in an online fraud campaign targeting both Amazon and Apple.

"The London Metropolitan Police said these are the last three of an eleven strong gang that used compromised payment cards to buy music from Amazon and Apple," writes The Inquirer's Dave Neal. "This 'large scale international' criminal activity saw the gang charged with fraud and money laundering offences and sentenced to a combined total of 13 years, four months imprisonment."

"Thousands of compromised cards were used to make half a million music purchases that earned the gang £300,000," Neal writes. "The estimated loss to Apple and Amazon is estimated to be £1 million."
