Sallnert was caught stealing $71 million. He started as a credit card processor in Switzerland and, when he wasn't earning enough money to his standards, created a program that falsely advertised anti-virus software. The Verdict? Sallnert was sentenced to 48 months
(4 years) in prison and must pay a
fine of $646,000. After this is done, you will be able to
