I was a tad amused to read on the Indian newswires that a 16-year-old teenager arrested for online fraud has said that college was useless when it comes to meeting his needs for an extravagant lifestyle.
The lifestyle the teenager is after includes a fine haircut and brand-name clothes and he found he could achieve this by defrauding people on Paypal and eBay.
What's worrying is that the teen fraudster seems to have picked up a lot of information on his fraud modus operandi by accessing international hacking forums on t'Internet.
"His knowledge of the codes and payment gateways is as good as that of a professional hacker," said a senior police official.
Brand-name clothes? Hasn't the kid heard of Primark?...
