    You have to give it to this guy. Thinking outside of the box . If it had been I however, I would have just ordered enough gear for myself and my lady. I wouldn't have got greedy.

    "Last year, 25-year-old Brad Stephenson found a loophole in one of Nike's websites and decided to take advantage. Over the span of five months, he used accounts meant for professional athletes to steal Nike merchandise worth over $80,000."

    Think outside the box to do illegal things. Sounds bad.

    $80k and gets off with computer fraud. Not a bad deal. He may even get hired as a security analyst soon depending on how the exploit is initiated.

    I guess saying "thinking out of the box" was a bad choice of words. No matter how you look at this it is fraud. I don't condone that.
