On Thursday, September 30, 2010, the FBI’s New York Field Office, Secret Service, ICE, and the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service carried out arrests in a multi-defendant cyber theft case. A total of 37 defendants, in 21 separate cases, were charged for their roles in global bank fraud schemes that allegedly used hundreds of false-name bank accounts to steal over $3 million locally here in New York and over $70 million worldwide. Nine defendants were arrested on Thursday, September 30, 2010 in the New York area, and one in the Pittsburgh area. An additional 10 defendants were arrested and charged over the last year.
Seventeen fugitives were originally being sought by the FBI following the operation. Yesterday afternoon, Yulia Klepikova surrendered to FBI agents. This morning, Stanislav Rastorguev also turned himself in to authorities. One additional fugitive, Dmitry Saprunov, was captured on Friday, October 1, 2010. The FBI is seeking the public’s assistance in locating the remaining 14 fugitives.
“The public plays an integral role in tracking down these bad guys—you can help by calling in a tip to the FBI or your local police office” said Special Agent Richard Kolko.
