Sex.com Thief Captured
That scum bag, Stephen Michael Cohen, who stole Sex.com from Gary Kremen (founder of Match.com) was finally apprehended by US authorities. He had been on the lam for 6 years, living just across the boarder in Tijuana, and on and off in Monte Carlo for the past 5 years.
Through some master scam, he managed to steal the Sex.com URL and earn a whooping $100 million dollars. Back in 2000 he was convicted of his crimes, but fled the US to hold onto his hefty some. Once in Tijuana, he began illegally siphoning his millions to off shore bank accounts.
Kremen who has never received any monies from Cohen (he had a suite against him), was able to seize two of his homes and launch a successful lawsuit again Network Solutions, which earned him $20 million. Kremen hopes to obtain some, if not all, of the settlement between him and Cohen, which is now $82 million (interest).
