A ring of 10 Russian moles was smashed yesterday, and among those busted was Anna Chapman, a young and beautiful Russian national, described by The New York Post as “a 28 year old divorcee with a masters in economics, an online real-estate business, a fancy Financial District apartment and a Victoria’s Secret body.”
Though she sounds more like a femme fatale from a bond movie, Anna has allegedly working as a real life spy in New York since January, transferring sensitive information to a Russian official.
The New York Post reports that an undercover FBI agent claiming to be a Russian official arranged a meeting to talk about weekly laptop exchanges, and “pretending to be ready to take the sexy spy on a mission to deliver a fake passport to another female agent.”
The delivery never took place.
After becoming suspicious, Anna sprinted into a Brooklyn Verizon store and bought a cell phone under the name, “Irine Kustov of 99 Fake Street.” But the FBI figured out she was on to them (Obviously – come on Anna, Fake St? That HAD to have been the giveaway!) and “immediately began rounding up the ring of suspected Russian spies who they’d been tracking for more than a decade,” reports The Daily News.
Though Chapman appeared demure in court on Monday, prosecutors were adamant about her role in the spy ring.
