Gang Buys own Music on iTunes with Stolen Credit Cards

iphone_pirate_itunes

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.
