Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 6:56 am

Six more people pleaded guilty Thursday to operating a Web site that investigators claimed was one of the largest online centers for trafficking in stolen identity information and credit cards.

With others who pleaded guilty in recent weeks, that brings to 12 people who acknowledged roles with the site, http://www.shadowcrew.com, which had about 4,000 members who dealt with at least 1.5 million stolen credit card numbers and caused more than $4 million in losses, federal prosecutors said.
