Perl Hacker Curtis Poe is the victim of identity theft, but he follows their digital trail himself, finds them, and calls in the cops to make the bust.

It's not something worthy of Law & Order because the kids doing the damage were just stupid, but Curtis knows how to follow their digital tracks and then talk to the people who actually sold the morons the stuff they were stealing. He combines his digital kung-fu with old-fashioned gumshoe work.

Maybe Curtis can hire himself out as a high-priced "Identity Thief Tracker"!
