Mollie Halpern: The FBI is offering rewards ranging from $50,000 to $100,000 for information that leads to the arrests of five fugitives added to its Cyber’s Most Wanted List.

Richard McFeely: The FBI has increased our commitment to tracking down the world’s most prolific cyber criminals that are using the Internet to commit crime against U.S. citizens.

Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau, and this is Wanted by the FBI. The fugitives are wanted for computer-facilitated crimes that defrauded individuals, companies, and government entities that together resulted in tens of millions of dollars in losses. None of the fugitives is in the U.S., but Richard McFeely, the executive assistant director of the Criminal, Cyber, Response, and Services Branch, says cyber criminals can’t hide overseas from the FBI.

McFeely: We’ve engaged extensively with our international partners, and through those relationships, we are showing success now not only in tracking down individuals, but as they transit from country to country, we’ve had successes in locking them up.

Halpern: To learn more, visit www.fbi.gov. Report tips to your local field office or nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate.
