A Russian ‘hacking genius’ accused of helping defraud $530 million out of Americans, enjoyed hiding out in Thailand and posing with exotic snakes, crocodiles and tigers before his arrest, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.
Sergey Medvedev, 31, was arrested in Bangkok on February 2 by local authorities on an United States extradition demand.
The hacking supremo is at the heart of $530 million suspected scam, where he allegedly ran a ‘one-stop shop for cyber-criminals’, including selling hardware to compromise cash machines in many countries.
Medvedev is seen in photos with his Thai wife holding a python, and in another, posing with his pet Mexican Black King Snake, which he feeds live mice.
The snake-lover also flaunted his toned body and described himself as a ‘strongman wannabe’, as the Russian showed all the signs of enjoying his luxury tropical lifestyle.
