Authorities in Tampa, Florida have arrested 17-year-old Graham Clark for being the alleged “mastermind” behind the Twitter Bitcoin hack that targeted several high-profile accounts on July 15th, 2020.

Two other individuals were also charged for their alleged roles in the Twitter hack, according to the Department of Justice. They are Mason Sheppard (aka “Chaewon”), 19, of Bognor Regis in the United Kingdom, and Nima Fazeli (aka “Rolex”), 22, of Orlando, Florida. Sheppard was charged with “conspiracy to commit wire fraud, conspiracy to commit money laundering and the intentional access of a protected computer.” Fazeli, on the other hand, was charged for “aiding and abetting the intentional access of a protected computer.” Both Sheppard and Fazeli were charged in a criminal complaint in the Northern District of California.

Glad they caught them.
I always feel like I can tell when things are a scam. Sometimes I have to explain how things are scams to my parents and grandparents. Typically on the internet and phone calls from India. I'm baffled by how they don't see it at first.
Then I realize that I'm sure I'll get to a point where I'm not as technologically with it anymore, and new scamming methods that aren't invented yet will be more effective to my age bracket and older.
