That information is according to one of Gonzalez's best friends and convicted accomplices, Stephen Watt.
Watt pleaded guilty last year to creating a sniffer program that Gonzalez used to siphon millions of credit and debit card numbers from the TJX corporate network while he was working undercover for the government.
