Brutal Financially Savvy Russian Mobster Wanted by FBI

October 22, 2009

(ChattahBox)—There is a new type of International criminal on the F.B.I.’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, and he doesn’t even live in the United States, but his global financial criminal enterprise can influence nations. His name is Semion Mogilevich and he resides in Moscow, Russia surrounded by a criminal gang of lawyers, risk management firms and associates with economic degrees to assist him in his sophisticated, international criminal activity.

Mogilevich, who has an economics degree from Ukraine is known as “the Brainy Don,” because of his business and financial genius. But he is also involved in arms trafficking, prostitution, extortion and murder for hire, says the F.B.I.

F.B.I. Supervisory Special Agent Peter Kowenhoven says, “He has access to so much, including funding, including other criminal organizations, that he can, with a telephone call and order, affect the global economy.”

F.B.I. Special Agent Mike Dixon describes Mogilevich, as “…more powerful than a John Gotti would be, because he has the ability to influence nations. Gotti never reached that stature.”

Mogilevich first came to the F.B.I.’s attention in 1998, during a raid of a Newtown, Pennsylvania magnet company, called YBM controlled by Mogilevich, which was a sham company that swindled investors out of millions. Mogilevich and his associates were indicted in 2003 on 45 counts of racketeering, securities fraud, wire fraud, mail fraud and money laundering.

But he remains out of the reach of U.S. authorities, because there is no extradition treaty with Russia. Still, he was arrested for tax fraud last year by Russian authorities, but remains at large on bail to continue his international criminal activities.

The F.B.I. believes he is now manipulating international energy markets.

However long it takes, the F.B.I. hopes to arrest Mogilevich one day, when he travels to a country that has an extradition treaty with the U.S.
