    Well if I was able to hide the money for future use I think I would take those five months handy enough.

    However you look at it I'd still prefer to be the smart one and not get caught.

    I am not sure if this is happening again or just the same old news because I read this news several times in the year 2013. Try a google search and you will understand what I mean.

    he would be making $5.6 million a month in prison. Thats about $187k a day.
    Totally worth it!

    He didn't get caught. He was framed.
    Some of the eBay executives encouraged him to meet their own internal affiliate sales targets.

    Read his open letter. There is lot more to it.

    Yep always worthwhile to do a Cost-Benefit Analysis before committing any Criminal act.

    5 Months is nothing, he will be out in 2

    For the amount of money involved he must be laughing.

    Fair play to him.

    I think I read somewhere that it was actually the FBI that encouraged Ebay to target him.
    He was probably grassed up to the FBI by another affiliate jealous of his success or that the method wasn't shared with him.

    I am not condoning what he did but that sort of money would tempt many of us.


    He can afford protection.
