The Drug Connection

Steven Massey was convicted of conspiracy to commit computer fraud and mail theft for his operation of an identity theft ring in which he enlisted methamphetamine addicts to plunder mailboxes and a recycling center for preapproved credit card applications and other material that could be used for identity theft. Methamphetamine addicts are perfectly suited for the crime of identity theft. They often stay awake for days at a time and can patiently perform boring tasks such as going through mail and even piecing together torn credit card solicitations. Drug money for identity theft information is a growing problem throughout the country.
