Russia and China as Pluto enters Caprcorn

"The Justice Department said on Tuesday that it had charged 11 people in the theft of tens of millions of credit and debit card numbers of customers shopping at major retailers ... in one of the largest reported identity-theft incidents on record.

"The United States Attorney in Boston said those charged were involved in the theft of more than 40 million credit and debit card numbers.

"The charges focus on three people from the United States, three from the Ukraine, two from China, one from Estonia and one from Belarus.

"The authorities said that the scheme was spearheaded by a Miami man named Albert Gonzalez, who hacked into the computer systems of retailers including TJX, Boston Market, Barnes & Noble, Sports Authority, Forever 21 and DSW, Inc. The numbers were then stored on computer servers in the United States and Eastern Europe.

"They then sold the information to people in the United States and Europe, who used it to withdraw tens of thousands of dollars at a time from automated teller machines, the authorities said."

All criminals except three and the mastermind were from the China/Russia area. This will be a sign of things to come, an harbinger of Pluto entering Capricorn. Rather than terrorism and the Middle East our energy will shift to "cold" "calculated" businesslike acts of violence. There will be financial and resource control issues, not passionate, symbolic, and very personal acts of terrorism for religious differences.
