FBI Offering $4.3 Million For Help Finding Cyber Most-Wanted

Big prize still going to whomever can help find Gameover ZeuS mastermind.

The FBI's updated Cyber Most Wanted List now includes 15 men (no women). The Bureau is still not offering monetary rewards for information leading to the arrests of five members of the People's Republic of China's People's Liberation Army who remain on the list. However, they are offering bounties for most others, which add up to over $4.3 million.

Most of that -- $3 million alone -- is devoted solely to catching Evgeniy Mikhailovich Bogachev, the mastermind behind the Gameover ZeuS botnet. The most-wanted list also includes a catch-all "Jabberzeus Subjects," whose identities are not yet known; no bounty is listed.

The FBI is also offering a hearty $1 million for information on Romanian citizen Nicolae Popescu, for his participation in an Internet fraud scheme. He's charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, money laundering, passport fraud, and trafficking in counterfeit service marks.

Also on the list:

Alexsey Belan, wanted for stealing and selling the user data and encrypted passwords of millions of accounts from three major US-based e-commerce firms. He's also been charged with aggravated identity theft and possession of 15 unauthorized access devices. Reward: $100,000.

Viet Quoc Nguyen, charged with computer intrusion and wire fraud conspiracy, after hacking eight e-mail service providers, stealing 1 billion email-addresses and other proprietary information, spamming those accounts, and making commissions on products sold to them. Reward not listed.

Peteris Sahurovs, charged with wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and unauthorized access to a protected computer because of an international cybercrime scheme that "utilized a computer virus that involved the online sale of fraudulent computer security programs that defrauded Internet users of more than $2 million." Reward: $50,000.

Shaileshhumar P. Jain and Bjorn Daniel Sundin are charged with wire fraud, computer fraud, and conspiracy to commit computer fraud because of a scareware scheme "that caused internet users in more than 60 countries to purchase more than one million bogus software products, resulting in consumer loss of more than $100 million." Rewards: $20,000 apiece.

Carlos Enrique Perez-Melara is still wanted for his involvement in manufacturing the "Lover Spy" a.k.a. "Email PI" spyware from 2003. Reward: $50,000.

Noor Aziz Uddin and Farshan Ul Arshad are wanted for their involvement in an international telecom fraud scheme that defrauded individuals, government entities, and corporations out of over $50 million. The criminal organization extended into Pakistan, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Spain, Singapore, Italy, and Malaysia. Reward: $50,000 apiece.
