Russian Heirs To Annas Chapman, Fermanova Still Being Sought
In our continuing quest to find young Russian successors for convicted spy Anna Chapman and alleged munitions smuggler Anna Fermanova, here are mug shots of four women indicted last month for their alleged roles in an international fraud ring that allegedly used malware to help loot U.S. bank accounts.
The quartet of United States Marshals Service booking photos (click to enlarge) includes a shot of Kristina Svechinskaya, the 21-year-old New York University student who has been given the “World’s Sexiest Computer Hacker” tabloid handle.
Svechinskaya, upper left, is joined, clockwise, by alleged ring members Julia Sidorenko, 22; Sabina Rafikova, 23; and Alina Turuta, 21.
Federal investigators allege that the hackers stole at least $3 million from U.S. targets.
