"Russian 'in $2.8m Citibank computer fraud'."
Citibank New York fell victim to a $2.8m fraud after a
Russian computer hacker penetrated the bank's security
system in Wall Street and removed the money from the
accounts of corporate clients, it was claimed in a
London court yesterday. The alleged fraud was carried
out by a 24 year-old mathematics graduate using a
computer in his office in St Petersburg, claim the US
authorities, which are seeking his extradition from the
"Russian Accused of Citibank Computer Fraud."
A judge set another hearing for Sept. 15 after Mr.
Levin's lawyer argued that the Government has not shown
that any computer in the United States was involved.
