    a group of DJs allegedly used stolen credit cards to buy their own songs on iTunes and Amazon, boosting their chart ratings and netting them nearly £200,000 in royalties.

    The nine musicians are believed to have provided 19 songs, described by police as of 'indeterminate quality', to a distribution company which uploaded them to the music websites.

    They then used 1,500 stolen or cloned US and British credit cards to buy almost £500,000-worth of the songs.

    t contacted police in New York and, with the Met's help, the accounts were traced to London.

    The DJs, aged 19 to 41, were arrested in London and the Midlands on suspicion of conspiracy to commit fraud and money laundering.
