Little did she know the feds were already on to her: In late June, "hottie" Russian spy Anna Chapman phoned her father, a former KGB member working for Moscow's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, worried about her recent communication with an FBI informant.

Chapman's meeting with an informant who asked her to go above and beyond what SVR had typically asked of her inspired her to call her father.
