In 2000, FBI agents lured Russian cyber criminals Vasiliy Gorshkov and Alexey Ivanov to the United States with a ruse involving a job interview. The FBI also downloaded evidence of their crimes from computers in Russia. From your own independent research, discuss whether the FBI’s investigative techniques went too far. Did the FBI act under the color of any international laws or compacts, or did they violate any laws? Do the FBI’s actions stand up to scrutiny under current US cyber laws? Have there been other, more recent examples of cases in which US law enforcement targeted non-US citizens in a similar manner? What, if any, are the positive or negative impacts of this case on subsequent cyber-crime investigations?
