5 Americans charged with email hacking schemes
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Federal prosecutors in Los Angeles have charged five people with selling or buying passwords for hacked email accounts.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Ronald Cheng says they’re not under arrest but are expected to plead guilty.
Charges filed earlier this week allege that John Jesensky of Northridge paid more than $21,000 to a Chinese hacking website while Laith Nona of Troy, Mich., and Arthur Drake of New York allegedly paid about $1,000 each to different sites.
Each faces up to a year in prison.
Mark Townsend and Joshua Tabor of Arkansas are charged with running a website that provided passwords for some 6,000 email accounts. They face up to five years in prison.
Cheng says the cases were part of a hacking crackdown with arrests this week in Romania, India and China.
