Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Spanish police have arrested an alleged cyber-extortionist accused of using stolen personal details of 4,000 users to blackmail Nintendo.

The unnamed alleged hacker, from the Malaga area of southern Spain, allegedly threatened to report Nintendo to data protection authorities over a security breach he was responsible for unless Nintendo met his demands. The online hustler made the threat last week before posting information on one user on an online forum after the games giant ignored his threats, AFP reports. ®
