Feds arrest 8 more in ongoing action against hackers targeting wire transfers

For the second time this month, federal authorities have arrested a number of people who allegedly participated in schemes designed to intercept and hijack wire transfers from businesses and individuals, including those involving real estate transactions. This week, eight more people were arrested for participating in a widespread, Africa-based conspiracy that allegedly defrauded U.S. citizens and companies out of $15 million over the last several years.
