This webpage [historisches-marinearchiv.de] is a very good source usually. I use it quite regularly.
But unfortunately, there is only a single victim of Bibers mentioned - the Panamian Alan-a-Dale (4 702 grt) sunk in December 1944, no victims of mine operations in 1945.
Those 7 ships sunk in March / April 1945 should have been confirmed by Allied reports (Tarrant, Roskill). Maybe it was revised sometime after the war (and they in fact fell victim to a different agent) but I have not found facts corroborating it.
