Operation Swipeout was a large scale, white-collar crime investigation into illegal fraud activities in the Eastern District of Virginia. 25 arrest warrants or complaints were issued as a result of this investigation in addition to eight individuals who have either been convicted and sentenced or have pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing. In all, 33 individuals have been charged in this investigation. Most of the individuals, all foreign nationals, are co-conspirators in a loosely organized criminal enterprise, which operates on the east coast, and is primarily involved in credit card, social security, immigration, and mortgage fraud. To date, this enterprise has caused at least $5 million in losses to credit card companies and banks as part of their criminal activities.
