Sword Stealers

Warning: protect your sword-bearing pussy or he'll have an empty paw. Japanese fuzz have arrested Yu Nishimura and Kaori Tanaka for allegedly ripping off 100 players of NC Japan's Lineage II to the tune of 1m yen (£7,630). They offered players a program that supposedly helped people play the game. Instead, the program stole account names and passwords. This allowed the pair to raise money by selling virtual items, such as swords, shields and armour, they "stole" from the duped players. If found guilty they could be fined up to 500,000 yen (£3,800) or go to jail for a year. I wonder if British law is sufficiently up to date to cover this type of scam.
