Taking place in mid January the two forces started a scheduled weekly conference call discussing the latest developments around cybercrime on the internet. but without realising that the guys they were talking about were actually listening in!
In the call they discussed certain individuals and aliases and the MET police went into great detail about certain criminals and what their plans were for the future.
Also whilst the call was taking place the MET officer decided to take it on himself to slag off Sheffield! Explaining to the US FBI agents how it isn't exactly the "Jewel in the Crown" for the UK. Classic!
I personally love these stories, and the embarrassment must be huge for these people involved!
The FBI have released a statement saying that they will track these criminals down, lol little too late maybe ;)
