    The major mistake these people made was including too many people in the scam. They made a nice plump target. This bust probably serves more as a deterrent than something that will put a dent in this "industry".

    I guess it still remains to be seen if they got it all right, considering the sheer number of people they netted. I have to wonder if the FBI (and Egyptian authorities) were accurate or if this was just a big phishing expedition. :doubt:
