Very interesting case if your into computer crimes. MN teen is accused of hacking the LexisNexis database.

A few months back one of LexisNexis's databases was hacked yielding the names and SSN's of 32,000+ people. As most of you probably already know, this information is used to commit identity theft. Apparently this info was used by this individual to get stolen credit cards. He then charged items with the stolen credit cards.

As part of his scam: "... had the items he purchased shipped to addresses of local businesses; he would then call the business, claiming there had been a mix-up in shipping, and ask if he could come and pick up the item when it arrived," according to the affidavit.
