One Click Fraud: more MS scammers likely
This week Seattle FBI told The Register that more arrests in the Daniel Feussner case were unlikely. Feussner was the Microsoft employee charged last week with selling $9 million of stolen software.
But Microsoft itself believes more cases will be unearthed as it investigates abuse of its internal purchasing system, The Seattle Post Intelligencer's Dan Richman reports today.
A number of investigations are underway, says a Microsoft spokesperson, and may result in dismissal and prosecution.
Amazingly, Richman reports that none of the individual items Feussner is alleged to have ordered had a value of more than $1,000, which triggers a form requiring a supervisor to click the "Approve" button - kind of like Amazon's One Click Shopping™.
Why the Feds aren't interested in pursuing more Feussners is puzzling. Perhaps it's another example of Microsoft policing itself?
