Eight people have been charged in two digital advertising fraud rings uncovered by the U.S. Justice Department in New York, alleging they cost advertisers tens of millions of dollars.

A 13-count indictment was unsealed Tuesday in federal court in Brooklyn, N.Y., the DOJ announced in a news release.

"As alleged in court filings, the defendants in this case used sophisticated computer programming and infrastructure around the world to exploit the digital advertising industry through fraud," U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue, of the Eastern District of New York, said in a statement. "This case sends a powerful message that this office, together with our law enforcement partners, will use all our available resources to target and dismantle these costly schemes and bring their perpetrators to justice, wherever they are."

"As alleged, these individuals built complex, fraudulent digital advertising infrastructure for the express purpose of misleading and defrauding companies who believed they were acting in good faith, and costing them millions of dollars," FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge William Sweeney said. "This kind of exploitation undermines confidence in the system, on the part of both companies and their customers."

The charges include wire fraud, computer intrusion, aggravated identity theft and money laundering.

Three defendants have been arrested in Malaysia, Bulgaria and Estonia, and they await extradition. The remaining five suspects are at large.
