Guam - Federal authorities have picked up a man wanted in the state of Washington.  Roman Seleznev was indicted three years ago for his involvement in what is described as a multi-million global credit card scam operation.  In 2011 he was indicted on several charges including multiple counts of bank fraud and aggravated identity theft. According to court documents from 2009 - 2011 he's accused of devising a scheme to defraud various financial institutions such as Chase Bank, Capital One and Citibank.  Fraudulent transactions were being perpetrated across the US and foreign countries.

Seleznev was picked up on Guam on July 6. A petition for removal has since been filed in the District Court of Guam.
