Ipswich scammer jailed after using dead woman's bank account for money laundering
Dainius Ziupka, 26, of Foxhall Road Ipswich, has been put behind bars for his part in a criminal gang's million-pound money laundering scam.
Ziupka, and other members of the organised crime gang used malware to get into victims' bank accounts, called banks pretending to be innocent customers and then laundered the stolen funds through 'mule' bank accounts before taking it out as cash.
After fleeing to his native country of Lithuania after his arrest, Ziupka was successfully extradited in November 2018 - and has now been jailed for three years and nine months.
