SOFIA, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- Bulgarian Chief Directorate for Combating Organized Crime and the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) jointly launched a combat against an international cyber crime gang stealing money from U.S. bank accounts, officials said here Wednesday.

The criminals used the so-called "phishing" emails to steal user names and passwords from clients of major U.S. banks and drain their accounts, the Interior Ministry said in a press release.

Three hackers of the criminal network, aged between 28 and 36, were arrested in the Bulgarian cities of Sofia and Burgas, the ministry said.

Computer configurations containing different hacker programs, documents evidencing money transactions, details of bank accounts, user names and passwords have been confiscated.
