FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) recently included 5 more suspected cyber-criminals into a 'list of most wanted men' it compiled, including crooks associated with powerful malware, one car sales fraud and identity theft, published irishmirror.ie dated July 2, 2015.

The agency announced a handsome prize-money for seizing Evgeniy Mikhailovich Bogachev whose other names are 'Slavik,' 'Pollingsoon' and 'Lucky12345.' The person, whom nobody could find since 6-years, if found will now get rewarded with a huge $3m (1.92m pounds), thus far the highest that FBI declared.

On No.2 in the list of cyber-criminals is Nicolae Popescu a Romanian hacker who if seized will enable a million dollar reward. His crime includes trafficking fake services and faking passports.

While carrying out his offence, starting 2012, Popescu apparently participated within an advanced online fraud scheme whose activities spread in Europe and Romania. And though FBI doesn't know where he's exactly hiding, the agency believes he can be found within some place of Europe.

Moreover, on No.3 is Alexsey Belan with an insignificant $100,000 reward because he raided 3 American organizations as also tried selling the companies' innumerable usernames/passwords on the parallel economy.
