A Vietnamese man has been sentenced to 13 years in prison for his role in a breach involving 200 million personal records from Court Ventures, a subsidiary of credit-monitoring firm Experian, IDG News Service reports. The Department of Justice said Hieu Minh Ngo, 25, was sentenced this week in the U.S. District Court of New Hampshire on charges including wire fraud and identity fraud. Ngo “tricked Court Ventures into giving him access to a personal records database by posing as a private investigator from Singapore,” the report states. Ngo was arrested in Guam in 2013 and had been selling personal information, including credit card numbers and Social Security numbers, since 2007.
