20 year old Englishman Lewys Martin earned thousands of pounds off a website he created to distribute hacks, and exploits for Call Of Duty, and that money wasn’t earned through advertisements, but rather via electronic theft.
You see, the Call of Duty hacks Lewys Martin offered came at an unknown price, each hack installed a virus that would log every key pressed by anyone using that computer, then send logs to Martin, who then sold the obtained credit card numbers for $1-$5 dollars on pirate sites (low prices are standard online for credit card numbers, as purchasing with them is risky/requires drop site, and CC numbers come in large amounts, in commonplace cases like this)
But what you might not suspect is how this young master of online manipulation was caught. Martin ended up under the cops radar whilet breaking into a school (which he had done several times previously)
Lewys Martin pleaded to the judge to let him finish his University IT course he’s currently enrolled in “which would allow him to harness his abilities for good and not evil” Martins defense lawyer claimed Martin is now “off the drink and drugs” reducing the likelihood of Martin reoffending. This isn’t the first time Martin’s appeared in court for breaking, and entering, so the Judge essentially said “fuck that, you had your chance” (in lamens terms)
Moral of the story? Stick to what your best at, if you spread yourself too thin, or else something’s bound to falter. This classic life lesson was brought to you by Adolf Hitler.
