A man who is believed to be the busiest online fraudster in Finland appeared before the District Court of Helsinki on Wednesday to deny the charges brought against him over a widespread phishing scam. The 24-year-old man and his accomplice are suspected of masterminding a fraudulent scheme in which phishing e-mails were spammed from accounts that appeared to belong to the Finnish Customs, Posti and collection agencies.
