AOL phisher faces up to 101 years in prison

`A California man faces up to 101 years in federal prison after a jury found him guilty of sending out e-mail scams as well as related crimes. [..]

Goodin, who was arrested last year, was found guilty of operating a sophisticated phishing scheme, the prosecutors said in the statement. As part of the scam, he sent e-mails posing as AOL’s billing department to trick people into giving up their credit card information, according to the statement. He then used the credit card data to make purchases, prosecutors said Tuesday.’
