If you are keeping track, online fraud is continuing. The Internet Fraud Complaint Center http://www.ifccfbi.gov told Wired that half the complaints it receives result in law enforcement investigations. And a California man who illegally accessed other people's online stock trading accounts was sentenced to more than three years in federal prison on Monday. http://www.wired.com/news/politics/0,1283,44452,00.html http://www.siliconvalley.com/docs/news/tech/003342.htm
