BERLIN - German police have arrested 10 people suspected of being involved in an international internet scam which could have cost victims hundreds of thousands, the Federal Police Office said today.

An 18-month-long probe resulted in raids in several German cities and the arrests of 10 Russians, Ukrainians and Germans who police think were involved in "phishing" - or tricking people into revealing personal or financial details.

The group targeted bank customers who received emails purportedly from organisations like eBay Inc and Deutsche Telekom, said the office.

Attached to the emails was so-called Trojan horse software which records data entered in computers.

I don't know if this has been noted yet, couldn't find a thread about it
