Carlos Perez-Melara Wanted by FBI for Making, Selling Computer Software to Catch Cheating Lovers


ID #13-364

The FBI has added Carlos Perez-Melara to the FBI’s Cyber Most Wanted list. According to agents, Perez-Melara is accused of manufacturing and selling online a software program intended to allow customers to catch cheating lovers by monitoring their emails, passwords, chat sessions, instant messages and visited websites.

He was indicted by a federal grand jury in San Diego in July 2005 and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

According to the indictment from July to mid-October in 2003, he ran the business from his apartment in downtown San Diego and about 1,000 people purchased an $89 program, marketed as “Email PI” and “Loverspy.”

The program would send the victim an electronic greeting card. When opened, it would install software that collected keystrokes and email messages. The spyware also allowed customers to turn on computer web cameras, “allowing the spy to peep into victims’ homes or businesses,” the indictment said.

His last known location was in San Salvador, El Salvador.
