Submission + - Fraudsters Scammed iTunes, Amazon For £500,000 Royalties (

judgecorp writes: "A British gang has been convicted of massive fraud on Amazon and iTunes. The group uploaded music (apparently their own) and then downloaded it repeatedly with stolen credit cards, generating £500,000 for themselves in royalties. The cost to Apple and Amazon is likely to be up to £1 million. Eleven people have now been jailed for the scam."
