INTERPOL arrests ‘Black Axe’ Cybercrime Syndicate Members


INTERPOL has arrested over 70 suspected members of the ‘Black Axe’ cybercrime syndicate, with two believed to be responsible for US$ 1.8 million in financial fraud.

The suspects were detained as part of “Operation Jackal,” a global law enforcement operation that took place in South Africa between September 26 and September 30, 2022. The assets seized by law enforcement during the raids, including tens of thousands of US$ in cash, pricey cars, luxury goods, and 12,000 mobile SIM cards, reflect these financial gains.

The arrests resulted in 13 analytical reports, seven INTERPOL “purple notices” that described the criminals’ methods, and six INTERPOL “red notices” that targeted fugitives who were wanted internationally.
