The Russians got a rap on the knuckles from America Online last week when the world's largest on-line service cut off access to users in Russia after fraudsters used stolen credit card numbers to pay for the service.
The company broke off its Russian access after it became apparent that it wasn't getting paid in real roubles. It is believed the stolen card numbers were bought on the black market in Moscow.
AOL said less than 2,000 users were affected by the total ban and admitted the problem could slow down its efforts to establish the service in the Eastern bloc.
