Svetoslav Donchev2019-09-20 00:00:00 UTC

Police investigators were led to Donchev when they discovered an email address in computer files of convicted cyber hacker Grant West. When he was arrested in his home in Pleven, Bulgaria, where he lived with his parents, Bulgarian and Metropolitan Police investigators found folders on his computer revealing the extent of his criminal activities. They established that he had created website scripts for up to 53 UK based companies, or companies with a UK footprint. They estimated there were a potential half a million victims as a result of his criminal activity. Sarah Jennings, CPS prosecutor, said: “Donchev’s criminal activity facilitated the compromise of hundreds of thousands of victims’ personal details and banking credentials by the theft of their personal banking details. Phishing scams cause enormous stress, upset, inconvenience and loss to users and customers of websites. They also result in huge losses to the organisations and companies affected.

Following his release from custody, and while serving a term of supervised release, Lacroix obtained employment, working as a manager for a company from approximately August to November 2018 when the company discovered that Lacroix had engaged in a fraud scheme that compromised the company’s computer system.

Judge Saris sentenced Lacroix to nine months for the violation and, yesterday, Judge Wolf sentenced Lacroix to 15 months in prison, to be served consecutively.

Police responded, believing they were dealing with a man who had shot his own father and was holding family members hostage. Andrew Finch, who lived at the address, did not know why police were at his home when he stepped onto the porch. When Finch made a move that startled officers, he was shot and killed.

The calls resulted in emergency personnel being deployed, as well as physical damage due to forced entry to one of the residences where Huffine directed the law enforcement officers.
