The Great $20,000,000 Verizon Wireless Heist

A guy who used to work for Verizon Wireless has just been indicted by a federal grand jury on ten counts of stealing twenty million dollars worth of PIN codes for prepaid cellular minutes between November 2002 and March of this year and then reselling them to other people (how much he got for them it doesn't say). Fortunately Verizon managed to make stealing from them very easy by neglecting to cut off his access to an account where they kept the records for their prepaid service even after he left the company back last year.
