Va. Lawmakers Aim to Hook Cyberscammers

Karin Brulliard, Washington Post (reg. req.)

The Virginia General Assembly this year passed a handful of new bills aimed at cracking down on computer and online crimes, including a statute that observers say is the nation's first law that criminalizes "phishing" schemes.

Makes me proud to be a Virginian.

Thanks to our good friend Privacy Digest for the tip.
