In what seems to be an increasing occurrence, Ars Technica reports that two California-based scam artists have been charged with hacking thirteen POS machines and adding lots of nonexistent cash to Subway gift cards. “At least $40,000” was loaded onto the gift cards, which were then sold at a discount on sites like Craigslist and eBay. Maybe these guys could join forces with the mother-daughter duo who cracked Coca-Cola’s code-based bottlecap contest and take down McDonald’s Monopoly once and for all.
