Secret Service Launches Most Wanted Cyber Fugitives Page

The U.S. Secret Service relaunched its Most Wanted Fugitives page on the agency’s website. Featuring the latest available information on these wanted fugitives, the website encourages the public to submit any relevant information they may have to mostwanted@usss.dhs.gov.

The Secret Service has a long and storied history of safeguarding America’s financial and payment systems from criminal exploitation. The agency was created in 1865 to combat the rise of counterfeit currency following the Civil War. As the U.S. financial system has evolved – from paper currency to plastic credit cards to digital information – so too have the Secret Service’s investigative responsibilities.

Cybercrime remains an enduring threat to the security of the nation’s financial infrastructure. Cybercriminals quickly shift their activity based on emerging opportunities to steal and launder funds using any tactics, techniques and procedures available to them.
