The District Court of Helsinki has convicted 16 young men for their involvement in a large-scale fraud ring operating on Huuto.net, a Finnish online auction site. The men, the court ruled on 16 May, broke into the accounts of several Huuto.net members and used the accounts for fraudulent purposes – to sell non-existent items.
