    Correction

    "Farhan Arshad and Noor Aziz Uddin, both Pakistani nationals who are wanted for allegedly hacking business telephone systems to make unauthorized calls", for which the affected companies would like to have billed $50m, although their actual cost was approximately zero.

    No Americans either.

    What! Surely they must have someone bright enough to work out what you need to do to get rich quick in the "Land of Opportunity"

    Where is all the spam originating from the US being made then?

      I don't know the bible so had to do a bit of googling for the biblical reference, it's very appropriate...

      Here is the passage

      "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?"

    Why don't the FBI just give the folks over at the NSA a call and see if they can get a go on "the All Seeing Eye"?

    Why is it...

    FBI, CIA and NSA should be on top of the list

    Have not seen any of them, but the FBI, CIA and NSA should be on top of the list.
