It doesn’t pay to be a pirate! Or to use public e-mail. #headdesk
Qiang Bi, a 36 year old man from Ohio was sentenced to several charges, including: copyright infringement, mail fraud and identity theft over the span of 4 years, while he illegally sold pirated games for $10 a piece. Bi was caught after sending a spreadsheet with his illegal activities to his personal e-mail account at his Nationwide Insurance job. His employer quickly contacted the FBI, which immediately began an investigation.
Bi was forced to pay $367, 669, which covered his illegal sales, which also forced him to forfeit his home, car, computer and personal electronics.
