Kid selling hacking of Facebook accounts for $40 jailed USD for 16 months

Thanks to a researcher at The Sun, it was discovered that a young computer expert used his knowledge to compromise multiple Facebook accounts and access his private messages. Liam Watts, just 21, acknowledged that he had acceded to these accounts and even mocks the conviction imposed on him by the authorities.

Through multiple media the hacker published reports about his conviction and mentions that his services can be hired for less than 30 pounds (about $40): “If you want me to hack any Facebook account, send me a message,” Watts says. The message was deleted from Facebook, although it could still be posted on other sites.

Last year Watts, originally from Chorley, Lancs, was sentenced to 16 months in prison for these acts. Watts reportedly hacked the Greater Manchester and Cheshire police systems in revenge for the conviction he received for the false bomb threats the user posted.

It is unclear whether the British authorities consider him a dangerous individual, although it is clear that Watts has advanced knowledge and tools needed to compromise accounts on online platforms, so users should be careful to contact him.
