Former nurse sentenced for cyber stalking campaign – Scottish …

A 27-year-old who carried out a campaign of harassment against a number of women has been sentenced to 22 months in prison, made the subject of a non-harassment order and placed on the sex offenders register.

Adele Rennie, a former nurse, has admitted using a host of invented aliases to carry out a series of stalking and sexual offences, a breach of the data protection act and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Kilmarnock Sheriff Court heard that Ms Rennie, using the names “David Graham”, “David Crolla” and “Davie”, “Marco” and “Matthew Mancini”, pursued online relationships with 10 women through various social media, dating websites and applications over a four year period.

She often reused the same storyline and characters, referencing the same names and using the same photos in each interaction.

In some instances she would call and speak to her victims using a voice changing application.

She would

Thursday, Nov. 16, 2017

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Georgia man has been sentenced to two years and three months in federal prison for participating in a scheme that cost Sedgwick County $566,000.

U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said 49-year-old George James, of Brookhaven, Georgia, was sentenced Wednesday for wire fraud.
James told authorities someone contacted him in September 2016 and asked to deposit money into James’ account. James said Sedgwick County sent about $566,088 to his account in Georgia. He spent some and transferred some money to banks in China and Germany.

Shropshire cyber attack: Student who targeted county firm to be sentenced for world-wide offences

Jack Chappell helped cyber crooks attack millions of websites around the world, including a 2015 attack on NatWest that brought down the firm’s online banking systems.

His Dark Web enterprise vDos-s.com offered Bronze, Silver, Gold and VIP hack packages on a sliding price scale depending on the severity of damage customers wanted to inflict on target websites.

The 18-year-old supplied Denial of Service (DoS) software that crashes websites by flooding them with huge volumes of data.

He even offered an online helpdesk as part of the operation which meant people with little or no IT knowledge could launch crippling digital attacks at the push of a button.

But Chappell, from Stockport in Greater Manchester, also conducted thousands of web assaults himself aimed at companies including T-Mobile, EE, Vodafone, O2, BT, Amazon, Netflix and Virgin Media, plus the BBC and National Crime Agency.
