BBC News - Lineage II pair arrested for stealing virtual goods

BBC News - Lineage II pair arrested for stealing virtual goods: "Japanese police have arrested two people suspected of stealing virtual goods from players of online game Lineage II.

The pair tricked victims via a booby-trapped program that claimed to help people play the game.

Instead of boosting a character's abilities the program stole account names and passwords.

About 100 people are thought to have fallen victim, netting the pair about 1m yen (£7,630)."
