Wow, I need to contact this guy to earn some real money.

Government agencies view:

Wow, we need to bust this guy before he recruits/infects more people.


Evgeniy Mikhailovich Bogachev is priceless in the eyes of many cybercriminals. The 3 million ransom which is put on information which will lead to the arrest of Evgeniy Bogachev is kinda useless (my opinion).

Bogachev is a guy which is capable of stealing hundreds of millions and putting ransom on someone (Evgeniy Mikhailovich Bogachev) which is making a living of ransomware and fraud is kinda silly. Evgeniy Mikhailovich Bogachev is gone, and the FBI knows it.
