Credit card fraud is always going on somewhere and the latest example is a UK teen who recently got caught using stolen credit cards to purchase about $750,000 worth of music. His own music that he and his band offered on Amazon and the iTunes music store between January 2008 and June 2009. By doing so, he earned himself some nice royalty fees. Not that this will help him when he is behind bars.

The group allegedly downloaded the songs 6,000 times during that period. Crime doesn’t pay kids. And if you have to buy your own music to make it sell, maybe you should get a new gig.
