Nine people are being held in custody in the UK on suspicion of conspiracy to commit fraud and money laundering. The alleged scam involved the fraudsters purchasing their own recordings from Apple iTunes and Amazon using stolen credit cards. Approximately $750,000 was processed through 1,500 compromised UK and USA credit cards, undetected by the merchants in question as fraudulent.
