SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – A federal grand jury indicted Maxito Pean Wednesday for stealing money from a Southbay man through an email takeover scam.
Authorities said Pean sent a phishing email to a man in Saratoga to trick the man into entering his bank username and password on a phony website. Pean used the information to access the victim’s bank accounts. Pean directed Deutsche Bank in San Francisco to transfer $233,200 from the victim’s account.
Pean, 51, of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, faces charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and four substantive counts of wire fraud. He was also charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering, four substantive counts of laundering funds to conceal their source, and six counts of engaging in financial transactions using criminal proceeds.
