Federal agencies, and even law enforcement overseas, worked together to arrest 281 people, including 74 in the United States.

The arrests were part of a four-month crackdown on digital schemes called Operation ReWired. Those arrested are accused of tricking their victims into sending them money.

“As you can imagine, especially in the days of the internet and anonymity that it provides, it’s very difficult to track those down,” said Andrew Sekela, Supervisory Special Agent with the FBI.

Phony romance schemes, in which victims think they’re giving money to someone they’ve fallen in love with.
Mortgage swindle, tricking victims into wiring home down payments directly to crooks.
Real estate rent theft, duping unsuspecting people into leasing homes other people own.
Shockingly, many of those arrested started out as victims themselves.

Arrests were also made in Nigeria, Turkey, Ghana, France, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Malaysia, and the United Kingdom. The sweep resulted in the seizure of nearly $3.7 million and the disruption and recovery of approximately $118 million in fraudulent wire transfers.

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
