Feds accuse bank insider of massive data heist

Source: The Register

According to documents filed in federal court in Los Angeles, Rene Rebollo (age 36) copied data from 20,000 customer profiles (including names and SSNs) onto removable flash drives just about every week for about two years. He would then sell the information for about $500 per 20,000 profiles to various buyers. Prosecutors allege that he netted as much as $70,000 through the scheme.
