Thirty-Six Defendants Indicted For Alleged Roles In Transnational Criminal Organization Responsible For More Than $530 Million In Losses From Cybercrimes

Law Enforcement Dismantles Forum Used to Victimize Millions in all 50 States and Worldwide in One of the Largest Cyberfraud Enterprises Ever Prosecuted by the Department of Justice


LAS VEGAS, Nev. – A federal indictment was unsealed today charging 36 individuals for their alleged roles in the Infraud Organization, an Internet-based cybercriminal enterprise engaged in the large-scale acquisition, sale, and dissemination of stolen identities, compromised debit and credit cards, personally identifiable information, financial and banking information, computer malware, and other contraband.

Following the return of a nine-count superseding indictment by a Las Vegas, Nevada, grand jury alleging racketeering conspiracy and other crimes, federal, state, local, and international law enforcement authorities arrested 13 defendants from the United States and six countries: Australia, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Kosovo and Serbia.

“Today’s indictment and arrests mark one of the largest cyberfraud enterprise prosecutions ever undertaken by the Department of Justice,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Cronan.

“As alleged in the indictment, Infraud operated like a business to facilitate cyberfraud on a global scale.

Its members allegedly caused more than $530 million in actual losses to consumers, businesses, and financial institutions alike—and it is alleged that the losses they intended to cause amounted to more than $2.2 billion.

2. Thank you. Great report

Wonder when investigators began going after these criminals?

Also wonder if any are connected to any connected to Trump et al investigations

Is this a shot across the deck?

3. It is a very big deal. Hope it leads straight to Trump crime family, Trump Tower servers, &

KGB Vladimer Putin.
Big Kudos to the Local, State, Fed, & International warriors who brought this together.

This is a damn good start!
