AVELLUM acts for the client in cyber fraud investigation

AVELLUM acted for an international e-commerce company in the internal investigation into the suspected insider fraud followed by the criminal proceedings.
In the course of the internal investigation, we uncovered the signs of fraudulent actions committed by a former employee through an online platform. He tampered with the customers’ accounts and altered their payment data to further intercept the payments in their favour. As a result, the client has suffered significant losses.
We identified a suspected perpetrator, conducted a row of specialized forensic examinations to ensure the preservation of digital evidence, and launched a criminal case with the Cyberpolice Department.

Subsequently, AVELLUM represented the client as a victim of cyber fraud in the criminal case. We initiated a number of investigative and procedural actions, including the disclosure of information held by Ukrainian bank, international e-payment systems, telecom services providers, as well as searches of houses where the suspected perpetrator resided.

As a result, a former employee of the company was officially declared suspect. Furthermore, the court has issued an arrest warrant against him. The suspect was put on the international wanted list. Once he is detained, the extradition procedures are expected to follow.
AVELLUM team was led by counsel Andriy Fortunenko with support from associate Oleg Shkondin.
