Florida Man Admits Laundering More Than $9 Million In Account Takeover Scheme

TRENTON, N.J. – A Florida man has admitted to laundering funds related to a $9 million business account takeover scheme with ties to Eastern Europe, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced.

Igor Buzyukov, 51, of Weston, Florida, pleaded guilty today before U.S. District Judge Anne E. Thompson in Trenton to an information charging him with one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

Between February 2018 and July 2018, several clients of Company-1, a financial technology company headquartered in San Jose, California, fell victim to an account takeover scheme resulting in total losses exceeding $9 million.

The scheme generally involved an unidentified individual or individuals calling Company-1 and impersonating a representative of one of the victim companies. The impostor(s) would then request that an unauthorized bank account be added to the victims’ Company-1 accounts and be designated to receive payments from e-commerce customers.
