Small-time phisher arrested; targeted Notre Dame credit union

Francisc A. Wonerth was arrested in Fullerton, CA when police discovered he was driving a stolen car. In the car, they found a number of magnetic cards that had been re-coded to acts as Notre Dame Federal Credit Union (NDFCU) bank cards. This led to the discovery that Wonerth had been phishing for account information from NDFCU customers. NDFCU president Leo Ditchcreek said that some 60 accounts had been compromised.

Police are still investigating. Remaining questions include the issue of how Wonerth acquired his email list in the first place.

Full story in the ND Observer: NDFCU's scammer identified.
