Affiliate marketer Alexander Podgurski has been arrested for money laundering by the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office.
The Paradise Valley Criminal Investigation’s Unit was recently contacted by the SDCDA asking for assistance in locating Podgurski, who initially fled from San Diego to Puerto Rico, according to a Paradise Valley Police Department report. Information had been developed that Podgurski and his girlfriend had returned to the US and were residing in Paradise Valley, the report stated.
Detectives were able to confirm that Podgurski was renting a home on Meadowlark Lane and obtained a search warrant.
During the raid of Podgurski home, numerous electronic and paper records were also located and seized, the report stated.
The items of evidence have been turned over to the SDCDA Investigators.
Both Podgurski and his girlfriend Farmer were booked into Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office 4th Avenue jail on warrants for conspiracy to commit money laundering, conspiracy to advertise falsely, and conspiracy to access computers without authorization, among others.
Each warrant had a bond amount of $1 million, the police report stated.
Podgurski and Farmer are expected to get extradited back to San Diego.
Sources say that Podgurski had been buying stolen credit cards on the black market and then used them to send traffic to negative option scams via fake news articles. The USA Herald plans to release the names of the affiliate networks that he used in an upcoming article.
