Manila - Two Filipinos and a Jordanian national in the Philippines are 
facing possible extradition to the United States for hacking into the 
telephone systems of large US corporations and selling the information 
to Pakistani nationals living in Italy, the United States Department of 
Justice said over the weekend.

A report on the US DOJ website identified the suspects as Paul Michael 
Kwan, 27; Nancy Gomez, 24; and Mahmoud Nusier, 40. Kwan and Gomez are 
Filipino while Nusier is Jordanian.

US authorities said the three are all residents in the Philippines who 
were arrested in March 2007.

The three are charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, two counts 
of unauthorized access to computer systems and possessions of 
unauthorized access devices including passcodes to US telephone systems. 
They each face a 25-year maximum prison sentence and a hefty fine.
