Feds charge six more in $45 million cybercrime ring

Posted: November 19, 2013 in Technology

Five of the six men were arrested in Yonkers, N.Y., and are scheduled for arraignment Monday in Brooklyn federal court before Judge Robert Levy. Ferreira fled after learning his friends were arrested and remains a fugitive, according to officials.  14 defendants have gone on a ramp page  steal debit card account information, and withdraw unlimited amounts of cash from ATMs worldwide, the prosecutors said. They said that the New York Cell withdrew about $2.8 million in a matter of hours. It’s the second largest theft on record in New York City, surpassed only by the 1978 Lufthansa heist made famous in the movie “Goodfellas.” This is very crazy i didn’t expect to here this but thankful the government stopped and found the people. That’s a lot of stolen money just from cyber crime. In the picture below is a released photo of a suitcase stuffed with $800,000 in allegedly stolen cash.
