Cybercrime along the I-5 corridor
It seemed like The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters played for months in various theaters around town back in 2007. After a detour that lead him into the Hollywood holiday hell ride that was Four Christmases, the director recently filmed a six-part online documentary film series about the perils of internet fraud called H*Commerce: The Business of Hacking You.
The film centers around a victim down in Sweet Home named Janella Spears who fell prey to a Nigerian 419 scam. She and her family eventually lost $440,000. H*Commerce also covers different types of hacking attacks and correlating information, featuring ex-hackers, law enforcement officials and industry officials.
The whole thing can be viewed over here. Eeep. Stay safe out there people.
