US Attorney's Office Southern District of New York

Damian Williams, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced that TARAS ILYICH BEVZ, a citizen of Russia, was sentenced to 46 months in prison for laundering over a million dollars of proceeds of various internet frauds targeting dozens of U.S. citizens and companies.  BEVZ was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald.

U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said: “Bevz, a Russian citizen, traveled to the United States on a tourist visa to engage in a crime spree that left over 40 people and entities with over a million dollars in losses.  From the day he set foot on American soil, he ran companies and bank accounts that laundered proceeds of various sophisticated internet fraud schemes.  Bevz’s illegal journey to America to commit crimes comes to an end with a significant prison sentence.”
