Iranian man involved in Mississippi bank fraud

GULFPORT, Miss.- An Iranian national was arrested after federal agents linked him to the selling of financial information stolen from thousands of customers at three southern Mississippi Banks. 

When 30-year-old Milad Rezaei Kalantari flew into New York to attain a permanent U.S. resident visa, authorities arrested him on the charges.

He plead not guilty to a 16-count indictment. He is accused of operating websites that sell stolen financial information.

Kalantari re-entered the U.S. after winning a “green card lottery” in which he would be given a green card for permanent residence. Authorities detained him once he arrived at J.F.K. International Airport last month.
