* A Pakistani man allegedly bribed AT&T employees in a suburb of Seattle with more than $1 million to illegally access 2 million of their company’s phones from 2012 to 2017 in a complex reselling scheme, the Justice Department announced Tuesday.
* “This defendant thought he could safely run his bribery and hacking scheme from overseas, making millions of dollars while he induced young workers to choose greed over ethical conduct,” said U.S. Attorney Brian Moran.
