SEATTLE — Federal prosecutors added 11 new charges against a Russian man they say hacked into U.S. businesses to steal credit-card information that was later sold on Internet “carding” sites.
The new 40-count indictment filed Thursday paints Roman Seleznev as a leader in the marketplace for stolen credit cards. Prosecutors say he even created a website that offers tutorials to other hackers on how to use stolen credit cards to commit a crime.
Seleznev pleaded not guilty to the earlier charges and will be arraigned on the new charges next week.
