Student Makes a Million Online, Gets Deported

Slashdot is reporting that a Chinese student in Japan got in some hot water after giving into the dark side for "spending money". Reportedly after making a bout 1.3 million US dollars selling gold and items, he was caught by Japanese officials.

"He started selling items such as weapons and currency for online games through an Internet auction site in April this year, without obtaining the appropriate residency status. Wang, living in Kumamoto, has admitted that he sold the virtual goods for about 6 million yen ($US 1.3 Million), in violation of the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Law. A bank worker became suspicious when Wang regularly sent money back home to China and alerted police in August, prompting Kumamoto police officers to investigate the student."
