A 49-year-old individual, from Anadia council, has been arrested and charged with computer fraud, illegitimate access and copyright infringement through a “Card sharing” scam.

According to the PJ, the detainee created, maintained and owned an illicit network of television services which he provided to customers receiving payments for the services.

The illegal services were made up of servers installed abroad in countries such as Italy and the Czech Republic.

By the time police action took place more than a hundred customers had been illegitimately receiving protected TV signals without the national operators’ knowledge.

These actions made it impossible for the national operators to receive the payment due to them, resulting in loss of revenue and the absence of settlement of correspon-ding tax revenue.

During the search some of the evidence seized included computer systems dedicated to the management of clients with the permission codes that gave access to the servers.
