What exactly is the fraud - is it because he didnít ask his clients for permission or is he defrauding Delta? What if he got permission from customers to put his account number?

He was defrauding Delta. He was using a program that was only supposed to be for employees of the company he used, but instead he used it for all his clients. So the client got his regular skymiles, and he got his extra skybonus miles.

Several of the major BBC Earth series have had 10 minute behind the scenes clips at the end of each episode. Really remarkable the ingenuity of these wildlife photographers, not to mention their dedication and perseverance.
