VoIP fraudster Pena’s fugitive run comes to an end

Over the past three years, we’ve covered at great length the case of Edwin Pena and Robert Moore where Pena created a scheme where he apparently represented himself as a legitimate VoIP service provider – and then routed calls over other people’s networks. When last we left the story, Pena’s co-conspirator Robert Moore was sitting in jail while Pena was reportedly off somewhere in South American.

ComputerWorld now reports that Edwin Pena has been caught in Mexico and will be extradited back to the US. It will be interesting to see what, if any, new information turns up during his trial.
