21-year-old computer hacker has been jailed for three years for masterminding a scam which enabled £27million of fraud to be committed.
Jay Moore set up fake shopping website Freshshop to ‘farm’ credit card data from unsuspecting users, which he then sold to international criminal gangs.
He also hacked into payment systems to obtain databases of card information which he sold in bulk through his website.
Detectives later found the card details of more than 340,000 individuals on his home computer and £81,000 of cash in a safe in his bedroom.
Moore spent his money on a top-of-the-range BMW with a personalised number plate valued at over £10,000, and gave £40,000 to his father to help buy a large farmhouse.
Banks reported fraudulent losses linked to cards in excess of £26.9million.

Moore, who has no formal qualifications, pleaded guilty to 12 charges of fraud, money laundering and computer misuse at Bristol Crown Court.
His accomplice Damian Horne, 22, who used his personal bank account to collect criminal funds received through the website, was jailed for 21 months.
Tell me, if this boy were your son, brother or even boyfriend, will you pat him on the head and say 'Weldon' or will you be disappointed?
