Global Crime Sting – hundreds arrested – tricked into using FBI app

More than 800 suspected criminals arrested worldwide after being tricked into using an FBI-run encrypted messaging app.

The operation jointly conceived by Australia and the FBI, saw devices with the ANOM app secretly distributed among criminals.  This allowed police to monitor their chats about drug smuggling, money laundering and even murder plots.

Officials called it a watershed moment.

Targets included drug gangs and people with links to the mafia.

What are you thoughts on this?  Is it an amazing sting?
