I-Team: How One Long Island Woman Caught Her Cyber Stalker …

A Long Island woman, stalked, bullied and attacked by an aggressor on the Internet is speaking out about why it’s not always easy to catch your cyber stalker.

“She created a Facebook account with my work profile pic and wrote horrendous things,” Lisa Michelle Kucharz told the I-Team. “She wrote I was a pedophile, that I was a prostitute, all of these lies.”

Kucharz — a social media expert who teaches college courses on new media — tried to block her stalker but almost immediately, she would create a new alias. On one social media platform, Kucharz says she counted more than three dozen names by the same person.

When the cyber stalking turned into actual stalking, Kucharz knew she had to involve police.

Russian cybercriminal caught with $272000 in $100 bills, $5 million in bitcoin

A Russian hacker in Los Angeles who had extensive business relationships on the dark web and claimed he had 40,000 stolen credit-card numbers was sentenced Monday to more than nine years in prison on wire fraud charges.

Alexander Tverdokhlebov, 29, pleaded guilty to the charges in March. He came to the United States in 2007 and obtained U.S. citizenship. He actively participated in cybercrime since 2008, according to the Dept. of Justice, and claimed he had gained access to nearly half a million computers.

“Tverdokhlebov forged lucrative business partnerships with other Russian-speaking cybercriminals, with whom he exchanged tools, services, and stolen personal and financial information,” the DOJ said.
