From at least May 2007 through July 2017, Aleksey Timofeyevich Stroganov was allegedly part of a criminal conspiracy to hack into the computer networks of individuals and companies and steal, among other things, debit and credit card numbers and personal identifying information associated with the cardholders.

Stroganov and his co-conspirators harvested data associated with hundreds of millions credit card and banking accounts. To profit from the scheme, Stroganov oversaw a network of re-sellers and vendors who Stroganov provided with access to databases containing personal identifying information and payment card data for hundreds of thousands of accounts. The vendors then sold that data over the dark net through cybercrime forums and dark net websites. In total, the scheme resulted in losses to financial institutions exceeding $35 million.

Stroganov is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud affecting a financial institution, three counts of wire fraud, three counts of bank fraud, and three counts of aggravated identity theft.

The prosecution is being handled by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey and the U.S. Department of Justice Criminal Division’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section (CCIPS).
