Finnish police are investigating the theft of virtual property in the popular teen hangout, Habbo Hotel. According to a news report published on breitbart.com, significant amounts of virtual property were stolen from some 400 users of the virtual world using "hoax web sites" to trick users into divulging their usernames and passwords.
Armed with that information, the thieves went through the user accounts and stole virtual property. What property was stolen was not disclosed in the report. Doesn’t Habbo Hotel warn against this sort of thing like every other virtual world on the planet?
Police have allegedly searched several homes in five Finnish cities, confiscated computer equipment and brought several people in for questioning. The quantity, types and value of the property are not known at this time.
