DJs Arrested For Stealing Their Own Music

Well, this is an interesting way of going about credit card fraud - a remix of the original concept if you like. A group of ten DJs from around England have been arrested on suspicion of fraudulently acquiring some £200,000 by using stolen credit cards to buy their own music off online music services like Amazon and iTunes.

It's alleged that the DJ types, who range between the ages of 19 and 46, uploaded some tunes they'd made to the digital music stores. Then they went online using 1500 different stolen credit cards and bought their own music, spending some £450,000, and earning themselves £200,000 in royalties. Simple.

The group hail from London and the Midlands, and were arrested as part of a joint operation between the Metropolitan Police and the FBI.
