Scammers stole over $100 million from Facebook and Google in a creative way: They emailed the tech giants and asked for it.

Evaldas Rimasauskas, 50, pleaded guilty last week to wire fraud after helping to orchestrate a scheme that included setting up a fake business and sending phishing emails to employees of Facebook and Google. The scheme ultimately duped those multibillion-dollar companies out of more than $100 million in total between 2013 and 2015, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York.
