A major cell phone fraud scheme is busted up in South Florida.

20 people are being indicted on wire fraud charges after prosecutors say they would steal personal information from AT&T and Verizon customers, and then add new phones to their accounts.

In all, they accessed at least 2,000 accounts, racking up more than half-a-million dollars in new phones.
