Internet Fraudsters To Pay $2.3m

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 12:31 pm

Two internet geeks who made a fortune by misleading net users must pay $2.3million, after a court found they flagrantly broke copyright laws in an elaborate scam.

Brad Norrish and Chesley Rafferty were the brains behind a massive operation to copy personal information from 2.2million websites on a UK domain-name register in January 2003.

They used the information to send authentic-looking notices to 50,000 website owners, telling them to pay a fee or risk losing their domain name.
