An ongoing undercover operation has been announced by the U.S. Secret Service to target people who steal personal information. Operation Rolling Stone has already made several arrests related to alleged offenders using the internet to commit credit card fraud. A recent nationwide rash of fraudulent debit card withdrawals has also come under the spotlight of the operation.

"Cybercrime has evolved significantly over the last two years, from Dumpster diving and credit card skimming to full-fledged online bazaars full of stolen personal and financial information," said Assistant Director Brian Nagel of the Secret Service's Office of Investigations. "We continue to adapt our investigative techniques to progressively combat emerging threats to our nation's financial institutions."
