UK: A man charged for illegal sale of a bingo site data

Marc Ben-Ezra, a former employee of a company of online-gambling of Finchley, UK, sold the personal data of 65,000 players of online bingo. It is a violation of the Article 55 of the Act on the protection of confidential information of players. The crime was discovered last May when Marc Ben-Ezra sent a series of emails to operators of gambling site in the UK under the pseudonym of Malcolm Edwards. These mails contain personal data of some members of the gambling site that employed him. And following an investigation, it was discovered that Ben-Ezra effectively sold 65,000 personal data for a sum of £ 1,700. The perpetrator has illegally obtained this information by hacking into the information system of the game site.

In last August, Ben-Ezra confessed having committed these offenses after a meeting with officials of the British ICO (Information Commissioner's Office). He also admitted that he made this fraudulent traffic while working for a gambling site in Israel. The act committed by Marc Ben-Ezra violates the privacy of thousands of bingo lovers as well as the future of the bingo site victim of the robbery. The ICO didn't yet received any complaints from victims, but they can be reassured that their confidential information are now secure. For this offense, Ben-Ezra is on parole for 3 years and should pay a fine of £ 1,700 for the gaming company and the costs of trial of £ 830.80 according to the sentence by the court of Hendon.
