Hacker gets 9 years for ‘massive’ ID theft

For a time dubbed one of the San Diego FBI’s most wanted cyber fugitives, John Gordon Baden hid out in Tijuana, where he trafficked in the stolen identities of potential homeowners who applied for loans through a U.S. mortgage company.

By the time Mexican authorities arrested Baden in November 2014, U.S. investigators say his computer hack had given him access to more than a half-million loan documents containing names, social security numbers, addresses and email accounts.
