Phishing Scam Tricked Two US Tech Firms Into Wiring Over $100m

A Lithuanian man has been charged with defrauding two major US tech companies of $100 million via an email phishing scam.

In a statement issued this week, the US Department of Justice (DoJ) said that Lithuanian native, Evaldas Rimasauskas masterminded a sophisticated  phishing scheme that over the course of two years targeted US firms. The Eastern European managed to con the tech giants  out of $100 million by pretending to be a legitimate Asian business partner of at least one of the victims.
