Two Pakistanis Added To FBI's Cyber Most-Wanted List

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation has added two Pakistanis to its list of most-wanted cybercrime suspects.

The FBI says on its website that Farhanul Arshad, 40, and Noor Azizuddin, 50, are wanted for their alleged involvement in an international telecommunications scheme that between November 2008 and April 2012 compromised computers and ultimately defrauded individuals, companies, and government entities in both the United States and abroad of amounts in excess of $50 million.

The FBI is offering $50,000 rewards for information leading to the arrest of each suspect.

The international scheme involved members of a criminal organization that extended into Pakistan and several other nations in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Europe.
