Three men were recently arrested in Bulgaria, charged with involvement in a phishing gang that targeted customers of US banks.

"The men were detained last week in Sofia and Burgas following a joint investigation by the computer crime division of the Bulgarian Chief Directorate for Combating Organized Crime (CDCOC) and the FBI," writes ComputerworldUK's Lucian Constantin.

"The gang sent phishing emails that appeared to originate from major US banks and directed recipients to fake online banking websites with the purpose of stealing their user names and passwords, the Bulgarian Interior Ministry said in a statement last week," Constantin writes.
