Computer hackers linked to the Russian mafia robbed Royal Bank of Scotland
customers of £6million in 12 hours.
The crooks pulled off the massive sting by dispatching an army of thieves
using cloned debit cards to blitz more than 2000 cash machines in 280 cities
Stunned bosses at the Edinburgh bank were helpless to stop £6million of cash
being plundered from the ATMs in Scotland’s biggest bank heist.
But, we can reveal gang leader Viktor Pleshchuk, 28, has been snared in the
Russian city of St Petersburg following a massive FBI investigation.
Acting US Attorney Sally Quillian Yates described the heist as "perhaps the
most sophisticated and organised computer fraud attack ever conducted".
