Svechinskaya and 37 others allegedly used dummy bank accounts, fake passports and a Zeus Trojan to pilfer $3 million from U.S. banks and another $9 million British banks. Svechinskaya's role was as a "money mule."

From the original FBI report:

SVECHINSKAYA has allegedly opened at least five accounts under her own name and under the aliases "Anastasia Opokina" and "Svetlana Makarova" at Bank of America and Wachovia, into which over $35,000 was fraudulently deposited, affecting three victims, and from which approximately $11,000 was successfully withdrawn.
