In the early days of the internet, access to websites was conducted by "dial-up" modems. Billions of people worldwide found themselves silently disconnected from a local telephone number to an expensive Premium Rate number, and the call was also bounced around the world. The victims were members of the public who were supposed to be protected by Regulation, but instead were forced to pay huge phone bills. Of course, the law was always late to catch on and most of these early "white collar crimes2 were never prosecuted (at least not in the UK). This presentation was originally put forward at the European Telephone Network Operators Fraud Working Group by its President Luis, who was the only guy with the knowledge and contacts to trace all the way back to the source Lee Jones. No one questions how you made your money so long as you have enough to splash around and today Lee is still in business with his own private investment company(http://www.creditas.com) and telco (see http://www.neutrinonetworks.co.uk), having sold his original businesses Wire9 and Cloud9 back in 2008.
