The story I read had it as two individuals. The not-so-bright one who had
access to the bank and the bright one who designed and built a device to
put inline at the bank. The device diverted the equiv of pennies per
transaction that passed through it to a bank account that the two had set
up somewhere. It was a brilliant scheme. They screwed up by trying to
withdrawl huge amounts of money at a time. THAT's what got them caught.
The point the person was trying to make is still valid though. It would
not take long to come up with $100,000 worth of damages.
