U.S. charges dozens in massive hacking probe: source

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Law enforcement officials in New York were expected to announce on Tuesday charges against dozens of people in an international case involving online financial fraud, a person familiar with the matter said.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation in New York, which headed the probe, had been monitoring online forums where people illegally traded credit card information, according to the source, who asked not to be identified.
