NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Eighteen people have been charged in what may be one of the nation's largest credit card fraud rings, a sprawling international scam that duped credit rating agencies and used thousands of fake identities to steal at least $200 million, federal authorities said Tuesday.
[Many S Asians involved; some citizens of US]
"Through their greed and arrogance," Fishman said, the people arrested harm credit card companies, consumers and "the rest of us who have to deal with increased interest rates and fees because of the money sucked out of the system by criminals."
Wait ... maybe it's about US bankers, after all...

The way you twist the topic of a thread into denigration
by Ziks511 / February 7, 2013 9:46 PM PST

of one of your numerous pet hates is ludicrous. If you ever post a picture, I suggest you title it King of the Red Herrings.

BTW, any criminal clever enough and determined enough to pull this off would probably do very well in a regular job. It's just that a regular job doesn't pay as well, and that is a telling criticism of the distribution of wealth in the country. One of the things that decent wages buys is a certain level of freedom from crime like this for the rest of us.

post my picture?

I don't run off to Canada to hide out. My picture's been available for years in this forum. Coryphaeus has a page of many forum participants, including mine. Where's yours?

Sorry I started a trashing thread.

My subject line was ironic, hence my bracketed comment. The second quote could have come from a 2008 US story also IMO. Anyway, it's a sad story; probably should have left it alone.
