Ukrainian in Biggest Credit Card Con Job in Delhi

Faizan Haider writes on India Today:

Officers from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and its Indian counterpart detained a Ukrainian national from the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) on Monday for his involvement in Net fraud and identity theft.

The man, Sergey V. Storchak, was travelling on a Jetlite flight S2 120 (Goa-Mumbai-Delhi).

He is alleged to have been involved in the theft and sale of more than 40 million credit and debit card numbers.

The US justice department had described it as the largest hacking and identity theft case ever in the country.

A criminal case has been filed against Storchak for conspiracy to traffic in unauthorised access devices.

The FBI, which had issued a look- out circular (LOC) for Storchak, had intimated the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) about his presence in Delhi.
