'Bored' teens' $160m Internet bill
BERLIN, Germany (Reuters) -- Three German teenagers were being investigated for fraud Friday after they spent 130 million euros ($160 million) in a two-hour Internet shopping spree because they were "bored," authorities said Friday.
The 19-year-olds splashed out on light aircraft, patents, industrial machinery, restaurants and artwork after hacking into an account on an Internet auction site.
"They gave boredom as the motive and made no attempt to disguise what fun they had buying only the most expensive things," according to police in the western town of Limburg.
They said state prosecutors are investigating
I thought this was pretty funny, I heard it on the radio earlier this morning.
