Krebs on Security reports on a unique Russian language ad campaign:
An online service boldly advertised in the cyber underground lets miscreants hire accomplices in several major U.S. cities to help empty bank accounts, steal tax refunds and intercept fraudulent purchases of high-dollar merchandise.
The principal service being offered is money laundering, with the laundry keeping as much as 45 percent of the loot.
According to the IRS, just the reaping of false refunds from federal and state government costs taxpayers .2 billion last year.
What’s Russian for “creep”?
