I Was a Cybercrook for the FBI

‘An ID badge that Taylor wore when he was arrested indicated that he worked for Microsoft. But that was no more accurate than the two-dozen other employee badges he possessed for E-Trade and AT&T Broadband, or the 15 driver’s licenses from various states that featured his congenial face and a dozen aliases. Nor did Thomas’s California driver’s license help authorities identify him. Although it had his picture, the name and address on the ID belonged to a producer for the A&E channel.

With so many fake IDs in play it was unclear to police exactly who they had in custody. Then as they read Thomas his rights, he told them: “Get me some federal agents and I’ll give you a case involving the Russians and millions of dollars.”‘

This is quite long, but it’s fairly interesting.
