NEW YORK - A Turkish man has been extradicted to the United States to face charges that he organized three cyberattacks that resulted in $55 million in losses to the global financial system, US authorities announced on Wednesday.

Prosecutors called Ercan Findikoglu, 33, the mastermind behind an organization whose hacks resulted in stolen debit card data being distributed worldwide and being used to make fraudulent ATM withdrawals.

Findikoglu was arrested in December 2013 in Frankfurt, Germany, and was extradited to the United States on Tuesday, the office of Acting Brooklyn US Attorney Kelly Currie said.
