Max Ray Vision’s impressive hacking skills were only equal to his impressive prison sentence: 13 years — the longest hacking sentence in U.S. history, according to the website WIRED.

Last Friday in Pittsburgh, a federal judge sent the skilled San Francisco hacker off to prison and ordered him to pay a whopping $27.5 million in restitution for his masterful theft of credit card numbers, WIRED reported.

The San Francisco computer hacker was accused of stealing roughly two million credit card numbers from banks, businesses and other hackers.

WIRED reported that he “ran an online forum for thousands of identity thieves called CardersMarket, where he sold credit card magstripe data to the underground for about $20 a card. He was caught with 1.8 million stolen credit card numbers belonging to a thousand different banks, who tallied the fraudulent charges on the cards at $86.4 million.”
