There are six people on the United States Secret Service Most Wanted List, as of Jan. 16, 2014. These individuals are Dzmitry Burak, Toni Smith, Benu Shango, James Wan Shing Kong, Leonardo Bencosme and Levon Petrosian. Although the Secret Service is best known for protecting the president and federal and foreign dignitaries, much of the agency's day-to-day work involves financial crimes, which is the reason each of these individuals appears on the Secret Service's Most Wanted List.
The Secret Service New York Field Office wants Dzmitry Burak for identity theft. Mr. Burak is a computer expert and allegedly used the Internet to buy and sell stolen and counterfeit credit cards. The Secret Service Cleveland Field Office wants Ms. Toni Smith for identity theft and forgery. Together with several co-conspirators, Ms. Smith allegedly stole $268,500 worth of U.S. Treasury Bonds from a victim in Ohio.
Benu Shango allegedly committed financial institution fraud, and the Secret Service Madison, Wisconsin, Field Office wants him. He allegedly cashed over $350,000 in counterfeit commercial checks in the Madison area. The Dayton, Ohio, Secret Service Field Office is seeking Mr. Kong for bank fraud. He allegedly processed fraudulent health care credit card transactions, involving 1,000 customers.
The Boston Field Office of the Secret Service wants to discuss some counterfeit credit card issues with Leonardo Bencosme. Mr. Bencosme alleged possessed items used to manufacture phony credit cards. The Los Angeles Secret Service Office wants Levon Petrosian for the same reason -- making fake credit cards.
