Using sophisticated malware technology, a Russian gang consisting of 5 members used a complex network of cash mules to successfully launder cash that was obtained from accounts.
Police has found enough evidence of the missing £4.5 million. Some of the cash that was laundered was used to immediately purchase jewellery which was smuggled to Russia. The police were however able to recover at least £190,000. But they have agreed that the actual cost to the victims is much higher than this.
The last two members of the gang were jailed. They will serve seven years and six month on the charges of conspiracy.
