Illustration showing the "Corporate Accounts - Bank Locations"

By: Jeremy Young & Cat Wilson

The United States Department of Justice charged Aleksandr Zhukov, a Russian national and the self-proclaimed “King of Fraud,” with wire fraud conspiracy, wire fraud, money laundering conspiracy, and money laundering for his role as the mastermind behind a digital fraud scheme known as “Methbot” that scammed millions of advertising dollars from companies.

Our Role

IMS Consulting & Expert Services worked with the Department of Justice to develop a series of teaching demonstratives that clearly explained how the scheme operated and how Zhukov transferred the ill-gotten proceeds through a complex network of offshore bank accounts.

Case Results

Aleksandr Zukhov was convicted on all four counts by a federal jury in Brooklyn following a three-week trial before United States District Judge Eric R. Komitee.
