Two former Tampa, FLA TV news managers have been charged with illegally tapping into phone lines and computers at another station to gain a news edge over their competitors. Former new director Terry Cole and assistant news director Michael Shapiro at WTSP-TV have been charged with 17 counts of computer hacking and conspiracy in the theft of information from WTVT-TV through computer phone lines, authorities said. Their arraignment was set for May 19. If convicted, each could face a maximum prison sentence of 85 years. The two were fired from WTSP when the station learned of the alleged thefts. The break-ins began in November, 1988, but were not noticed until January 12, 1989, when WTVTs morning news producer noticed that files were missing, authorities said. Computer experts determined that an intruder had rifled the files. Authorities said Shapiro knew WTVTs security system thoroughly because he had helped set it up while working there as an assignment manager before being hired away from WTVT in October.

Criminals divert money being legitimately transferred from one business to another by pretending to be a legitimate supplier. Fraudsters target the person in control of a company’s finances such as the chief executive or accounts manager with a genuine-looking email. But the email contains hidden software which allows the fraudsters to obtain sensitive banking information if the recipient opens the email or clicks on a link. Funds from legitimate transactions between the ‘victim’ business and the partner business are then diverted into the criminals account and effectively stolen.
