Face Behind The Name: Meet Vitaly Borker, Notorious Online Bully
Meet Vitaly Borker.
The Brooklyn man was arrested by federal investigators last week on a variety of felony charges related to his operation of a web site selling eyeglasses. Borker, 34, hid his face during a perp walk, so here’s the first photo of the online outlaw.
The businessman attracted national attention after bragging to The New York Times that he deliberately abused and bullied customers of decormyeyes.com in order to get a higher Google search result ranking.
Borker, seen here in a United States Marshals Service mug shot, faces decades in prison if convicted of cyberstalking, making interstate threats, mail fraud, and wire fraud. He is being held without bail at the federal detention center in Brooklyn.
