coondoggie writes "The FBI today said it broke up what it called one of the largest credit card, cyber-fraud schemes in its history — a $200M scam that created more than 7,000 false identities and tens of thousands of fake credit cards. The FBI said it arrested 13 people involved in the scam the agency said maintained more than 1,800 "drop addresses," located across the country including houses, apartments, and post office boxes, which they used as the mailing addresses of the false identities."
