Affactive Hacker Sentenced to Prison

A Russian stooge working for scam casino group Affactive / Netad Management has been sentenced in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, for his crimes related to helping the group operate over the years.

Andrei Tyurin was charged with conspiracy to commit computer hacking, fraud, Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act conspiracy, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud. Charges of being a douchebag were never filed, but we still reckon that the felon won't be having much fun for the next 12 years that he's rotting in federal prison. Tyurin was indicted in 2018 in connection to the case, which has been prosecuted since 2015.

In addition to the rogue casinos, the operation also involved the penetration of networks belonging to JP Morgan, Scottrade, E-Trade, and other financial services and brokerage firms, in order to steal customer data for the purpose of marketing penny stock pump and dump scams. The criminal gang, led by Israelis Gery Shalon and Ziv Orenstein along with American Joshua Samuel Aaron, also dipped their toes into running a fraudulent Bitcoin exchange, and engaged in DDOS, hacking, and negative SEO attacks against sites reporting on their criminal conduct, Casino Listings included.

In addition to the lengthy prison term, Tyurin will be forced to forfeit $19.2 million to the Feds. After his sentence, he'll be deported from the United States back to his native Russia.

These scumbags tried to take this site down with DDOS and negative SEO attacks a few years ago because we dared to tell people the truth about their scam casinos. So he can rot as far as I'm concerned.

Agreed people like this only deserve lengthy prison sentences locked up where they belong , whish the guys who caught him would come to south Africa and clean up our government officials in the same fashion but instead of locking our corrupt officials up they could make them swim with the fishes

Well he does have plenty of time on his hands to watch it... if they let him near a computer.
