hmm I found this story pretty interesting
They dont have a clue who did it so the finger points at Hackers heh
The prosecutors who bust criminals became victims of crime themselves last week when someone used their credit card to buy breast-enhancement drugs.
A computer hacker apparently stole the office credit-card number of the Johnson County Prosecutor’s Office in Franklin and used it to fraudulently order more than $700 in purchases.
Among the unauthorized merchandise billed to the prosecutor’s office Visa card: $103.38 in flowers from FTD, $292 in merchandise from Best Buy and $344.95 for a supply of Bloussant, an unregulated dietary supplement that claims to enlarge women’s breasts.
“My first reaction was utter shock,” Johnson County Prosecutor Lance Hamner said. “For somebody to come right in and start stealing from our taxpayers, that’s pretty brazen. We hadn’t seen anything like that before.”
Hamner said his office manager, Michelle Murray, discovered the bogus purchases last week on the credit-card statement. The prosecutor’s office uses the card to charge office-supply purchases and travel and lodging expenses.
It appears the Visa card itself wasn’t stolen, since it was never missing. The card was newly issued, and the statement showed the three unauthorized charges had occurred before the first legitimate purchase made by prosecutor’s staff, he said.
“There was no way of knowing until we got the statement,” Hamner said. “The only thing we can figure out is, some hacker got into a list of newly issued credit cards and was making a series of small purchases, hoping it wouldn’t be noticed.”
Murray had the charges taken off the county’s credit-card bill and canceled the card, Hamner said.
A hacker could be operating anywhere, and Hamner has no reason to suspect the perpetrator is a Johnson County resident. He forwarded the fraud case to the county sheriff’s department. If identified, the suspect could be charged with credit-card fraud, a Class C felony punishable by up to eight years in prison, Hamner said.
Because the prosecutor’s office is itself the victim of the crime, Hamner would request a special prosecutor to bring the criminal charges, he said.
The herbal product Bloussant is sold online by New York-based Wellquest International. In its advertisements and TV infomercials, Bloussant is touted as increasing breast size and firmness. It’s marketed as an alternative to expensive breast-augmentation surgery.
Because Bloussant is a dietary supplement, not an FDA-approved drug, the manufacturer’s claims have not been scientifically evaluated. According to published reports, Bloussant’s ingredients are a veritable herb garden, including saw palmetto, damiana leaves, dandelion, thistle, wild yam, fennel seed and watercress.
Several male employees in the prosecutor’s office like to lift weights to build up their upper bodies, Hamner noted. But the thought of using Bloussant to increase their bust size had never occurred to them.
“That’s an easy way to do it; but we’d just as soon use the bench press,” he said.
