The FBI has offered up to $5,000 to anyone who can offer information that leads to the arrest of a cyber fugitive accused of stealing identities and using them to siphon funds from bank and brokerage accounts.
According to a press release, 38-year-old John Gordon Baden is one of the most wanted fugitives of the San Diego FBI. Court documents show that Baden and his two co-conspirators, Jason Ray Bailey and Victor Alejandro Fernandez, hacked into the computer systems of a United States-based mortgage broker and gained access to mortgage application files containing names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, driver’s license details, tax information and assets.
The suspects are said to have gained access to the records by obtaining the login credentials used by the company to manage customer records through the BlitzDocs application. They were in operation between July 2011 and August 2013.
