Cybercriminal Enterprise ‘Ringleaders’ Stole $55M Via COVID-19 Fraud, Romance Scams
#1
Information 
Quote:U.S. law enforcement arrested six “ringleaders” of a Ghana-based cybercriminal enterprise, who had allegedly launched a slew of money-stealing scams dating back to 2013 that included romance scams, business email compromise attacks and fraud. Seized in the arrests were a slew of luxury vehicles including two 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinans, a 2020 Bentley Continental GT and a 2020 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG.
 
Authorities estimate the alleged group of criminals made over $55 million during its crime spree robbing mostly elderly online daters, small businesses and more.
 
“The fraud schemes alleged that these defendants facilitated were lucrative, diverse, and most of all, callous,” said Manhattan U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss in a Wednesday statement. “As alleged, they engaged in email spoofing, duping elderly online daters into wiring them money, and applying for government-funded Coronavirus relief funds earmarked for the benefit of small businesses affected by the pandemic.”
 
While the six arrested were allegedly involved with the criminal enterprise based in Ghana, they were located across the U.S. and targeted individuals and businesses in the U.S.
