Re: Is $3 million enough?
I'm reading Brian Krebs's Spam Nation right now (fascinating read), and yes, it seems like the successful mid-level criminals who would have that kind of information might also be jeopardizing their very lucrative careers if they took that offer.

But then, I'm no expert.

Is $3 million enough?
Wow... I really wish I had some information to lead to his capture, because $3 million sounds awfully nice! I wonder if it's enough to attract the people who DO know. It seems like enough to tempt even successful mid-level cybercriminals, but maybe I'm overestimating the power of a few million.
