An anonymous reader writes “One of Italy’s 100 most-wanted criminals, a vicious mafia boss who had been on the run for months, was betrayed by his passion for social networking and flushed out thanks to Facebook. Using the name ‘Scarface’ from the gangster movie starring Al Pacino, Pasquale Manfredi, 33, a boss of the the ferocious ‘Ndrangheta mafia organization from the Calabria region in southern Italy, had logged on to his Facebook account so often that police were able to trace the signal from his Internet key and find his hideout’. Seems the Mafia Wars Facebook phenomenon goes deeper than it seemed!”
