"Twelve people were arrested Wednesday on federal charges of participating in a conspiracy to commit wire fraud and aggravated identity theft for their roles in a $250 million cell phone cloning scheme. The defendants allegedly cloned the phones by emailing the phone numbers and associated codes to each other and then using the codes to reprogram new cell phones. The re-programmed phones appeared on the cell phone service providers' networks as legitimate customer phones."
