The US Justice Department named the Australian man as 27-year-old Edgar Rojas aka Edgar Andres Viloria Rojas, aka Guapo, aka Guapo1988, aka Onlyshop.

Law enforcement has only arrested 13 of the members so far, five of which are from the USA and only one of which (Sergei Medvedev) is considered top brass.

Its members defrauded victims of more than £380 million (560 million U.S. dollars) after it targeted more than 4.3 million debit cards, credit cards and bank accounts globally.

Most of the organization, including five out of six of Infraud's leaders, remain at large.

Infraud was created in October 2010 by Svyatosla Bondarenko, of the Ukraine, with the goal of becoming the premier online destination for false credit card information, the Department of Justice said.

"Today's indictment and arrests mark one of the largest cyberfraud enterprise prosecutions ever undertaken by the Department of Justice", Acting Assistant Attorney General John P. Cronan said in a statement.
