The Russian alleged No. 2 leader of the transnational gang, Infraud, has been arrested in Bangkok.
Officers from the Crime Suppression Division arrested Sergey Sergeyvich Medvedev, 31, at Soi Sukhumvit 56 in Bangkok's Phra Khanon district on February 2. Police then took him to search his rented condo room at City Condominium's City Gate building.
The Royal Thai Police force was asked to locate and arrest the Russian by the US Department of Homeland Security late last year.
The Russian fled to Thailand six years ago, said police.
Infraud operates on the “dark web” to trade various technologies for carrying out economic crimes with digital money. The traded items included fraudulent ATM and credit cards, skimmer tools for cloning electronic cards, as well as fake passports and fake international driving licences.
