Obviously, we have access to the Internet in all corners of the globe. When you search for “make money online” in your favorite search engine, you get millions and millions web pages offering you to make millions in the blink of an eye.
Well! maybe not that fast. How about overnight? Like someone said the other day: “You don’t gotta do nothing.
You don’t gotta lift a single finger especially the middle one. And you would be making money any which way you can imagine.”
Well! The folks in the news that http://online.wsj.com/ reported today decided to accept the challenge and did something about it. I checked my online bank account this morning and luckily it was spared – with no fault of mine.
The U.S. Justice Department indicted eight Russian and Eastern European computer hackers, alleging they were part of a crime ring that allegedly broke into ATMs in hundreds of cities world-wide and stole $9 million in a matter of hours.
Prosecutors in Atlanta announced indictments Tuesday in a scheme that is among the most brazen and damaging electronic-bank heists disclosed to date. One of the men accused was arrested and is awaiting extradition from Estonia. The others are thought to be at large.
In a Nutshell
I have said it many many times on these pages. I am in the wrong business. Does money go on trees? For some, it does. But make no mistake, sooner or later you have to bear the consequences. The law of the land, the law of the globe, will catch up with you sooner than you think.
