A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted a man who allegedly used peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing networks to obtain individuals' tax returns, credit reports and bank statements in order to commit identity theft and fraud.

Gregory Kopiloff, 35, of Seattle allegedly used file-sharing software including LimeWire to steal a variety of sensitive information, and then used that data to create bogus credit card and bank accounts and illegally purchase thousands of dollars' worth of products. He allegedly even filed for a victim's 2007 tax refund, which he used to fund online credit accounts.
