Gang Buys own Music on iTunes with Stolen Credit Cards


Gizmodo made our Friday just a little more bizarrely amusing with a story about a British gang whose DJ made some music, got it up on iTunes (and Amazon) with a 40% commission, and then used stolen credit cards to buy it -- making them look popular, and $300,000 "richer" at the same time. Strangest part?

the British police won't know why they did it until they ask them?

Us neither then.

Gang Buys own Music on iTunes with Stolen Credit Cards


I'd have thought the reason why they did it was fairly obvious, surely. Dirty money goes into Amazon and Apple, clean money comes out. Classic money laundering, or am I missing something?
