A 17-year-old suspected of masterminding the celebrity Twitter account hack in mid-July was charged in Florida on Friday.
“This massive fraud was orchestrated right here in our backyard,” prosecutor Andrew Warren lamented in a statement.
The young man, Graham Ivan Clark, arrested in Tampa, Florida early Friday, is accused of impersonating personalities, including former President Barack Obama and Tesla boss Elon Musk, and of having published messages on their behalf asking victims to send bitcoin, a cryptocurrency. He would have collected more than 100,000 dollars in one day.
