It seems that not even the mightiest of I.T. firms are not immune to plausible scammers as a Lithuanian man has been charged with scamming Google and Facebook to the tune of $100 million.
This phenomenally large sum of money was apparently extracted from the technology giants following a successful email phishing attack.
Google states that it managed to recover its funds soon after the attack and although Facebook has obtained a substantial proportion of its losses back they’re still cooperating with the appropriate authorities.
