Phisher jailed for 4 years


A British man who ran a six-man phishing gang that stole nearly £200,000 has been sentenced to four years in jail. David Levi (aged 29) from Lytham near Blackpool stole bank account information from more than 160 users of the eBay auction website.

Other members of the gang received jail sentences of between six months and two years.

The gang set up a false website posing as the real eBay website then sent phishing emails to internet users leading them to the website where they then stole their identities and bank / payment details.
