The Metropolitan Police has arrested a pair of London teenagers who are suspected of being involved in an extensive cyber-crime ring.

Aged seventeen and eighteen, the two are allegedly part of an operation which has netted literally thousands of credit card details.

The online crime forum, believed to be the biggest English speaking international forum, witnessed members trading stolen credit card details and personal information.

The police say that their investigation into the forum has unearthed some 65,000 stolen credit card details alone. The 8,000 member forum also contained instructions on how to commit various acts of cyber-crime.

The teenagers were being held on suspicion of conspiracy to commit fraud and contravening the Computer Misuse Act. They have now been released on bail, and will be under further investigation, according to an IT Pro report.
