Good article at SecurityWeek on the case of a professional identity thief sentenced to 10 years in prison:

http://www.securityweek.com/hacker-caught-675k-stolen-credit-cards-gets-maximum-prison-sentence

The best part is his name: Hackett. Phonetically, that would be pronounced “Hack – It”. 10 years and a $100,000 fine for having 675,000 stolen credit card numbers which investigators believe led to more than $36 million in fraudulent transactions. It appears he had been working in his profession for about 7 years before being caught.
