TJX Hacker Was Awash in Cash; His Penniless Coder Faces Prison
By Kim Zetter
June 18, 2009
Accused TJX hacker kingpin Albert Gonzalez called his credit card theft
ring Operation Get Rich or Die Tryin.
He spent $75,000 on a birthday party for himself and once complained that
he had to manually count $340,000 in pilfered $20 bills because his
counting machine broke. But while Gonzalez apparently lived high off
ill-gotten gains, a programmer who claims he earned nothing from the
scheme sits broke and unemployed, his career in shambles, while awaiting
sentencing for a piece of software he crafted for his friend.
These and other new details have emerged in court documents filed in the
case of 25-year-old Stephen Watt, a minor participant in what the feds are
calling the largest identity theft in our Nations history.
The documents include a sentencing memorandum filed by prosecutors seeking
five years in prison and three years of court supervision for Watt, and a
counter-argument from attorneys representing the New York man.
