Early this morning, the FBI, IRS, US Secret Service, and Florida law enforcement placed a 17-year-old in Tampa, Florida, under arrest — accusing him of being the “mastermind” behind the biggest security and privacy breach in Twitter’s history, one that took over the accounts of President Barack Obama, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Kanye, Apple and more to perpetrate a huge bitcoin scam on July 15th.

But apparently, he wasn’t alone: shortly after the Tampa arrest was revealed and after we published this story, two more individuals were formally charged by the US Department of Justice, including 22-year-old Nima Fazeli in Orlando and 19-year-old Mason Sheppard in the UK. They go by the hacker aliases “Rolex” and “Chaewon” respectively, according to the DOJ.

That 17 year old was really a mastermind to do this.Though bad things end up with bad things,I really thought that the hackers won't be caught after they did all this:anyway:
 
whenever there is a big hacking in the world an iranian must be involved ! Nima Fazeli . I bet you Nima Fazeli was behind all this but got an underage involved so they don't get big sentences
 
teens keep getting caught for this kinda shit. a kid got arrested for socially engineeri g a crypto investors 2fa to steal 200k lol
 
I have to admire that at this age, they were able to do this. However, had they been a little older and wiser, they probably could have made 100x that doing internet marketing, using these inside tricks. However, they turned it in thinking they were gonna get all this bitcoin, which ended up backfiring on them.
 
They could be hacker expe
They had access to the riches people in the world and used it to steal bitcoin. lol
I wouldn't scam for btc in their position but what change you could bring to the world from their twitter profiles , can you share with me some ideas, I don't have any inspiration.

how they haven't scrapped and sold their dms for 1million+ is beyond me. Even if there weren't anything interesting, I am sure people would at least pitch in together to buy it out of curiosity.
 
Sheppard was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, conspiracy to commit money laundering, and the intentional access of a protected computer. Fazeli was charged with aiding and abetting the intentional access of a protected computer.

The charges against Clark, however, are more severe. The youngest member of the trio—who will be prosecuted as an adult under Florida law—was charged with organized fraud, 17 counts of communications fraud, one count of fraudulent use of personal information with over $100,000 or 30 or more victims, 10 counts of fraudulent use of personal information, and one count of access to computer or electronic device without authority
 
That was a really stupid idea they could even do trading by just placing some tweets and make a lot more, they could post something like "We x are going to work together with y and z companies to make this" then all of the other accounts retweet that and x company stock will go to the sky.

Exactly. They could have leaked some dm's of kanye or any other celebrity in exchange of money. Anything is possible. What surprises me the most is the fact that they thought they were safe. Getting 100k in an account which is verified with your driving license. Epic...
