    Hello,

    So nothing happened? I heard the lawyers said it will be hard to sentence them. If negative it would be relatively secure I think... when even ebay failed...

    If they are smart enough they won`t get sentenced. On Internet everything is hard to prove. Depends how weak you are

    i think most of these cases are media stunts. scare the mass away from it.

    This one isn't... he's going to do federal time and lot's of it in addition to a huge fine.

    The way they sentence you on the Federal level is based on a point system and part of the point system is based on the dollar amount of the fraud. I think I remember his dollar amount is in the 20MM range... no probation for that.

    It is a bit of a waste of taxpayer dollars to send him to a prison for this kind of "crime" but that's the way the system is set up.

    If he really is sentenced then this would break a wall and every small aff-network will start to do the same because they know they will win probably and earn money...
    So if true I think I wont start into CS...
