Hard to see how it wouldn't catch up with the person eventually.

Tl;DR
Kid buys credit card off the deepweb, turns them into gift cards to drop ship shit from legitmate eStore.

Or something along those lines, he's vague with the exact how-to for obvious reasons.

I wouldn't want to do it myself, curious about the fact he hasn't been caught.

For about a year and a half now I've been thinking about buying cards off of the deepweb. I put the idea on the back burner because I started trading. This article has re-sparked my interests. I truly believe that the only way to break through, is to break the law. If anyone here has any experience it would be cool if you shared. There used to be daily threads on Veeky Forums about shit like this, but nowadays everyone is to pussy or to buisy gambling on penny stocks to care or discuss.

lol I remember using these back in 2011 in a walmart. my roommate and I bought a bag of chips and some pizza rolls and the cashier gave us like 29 cents when we didn't give her anything. we were too nervous to think about it, but I guess the coupons were for more money off than the price of the item and the lady actually gave us money....

/b/ actually saved me like $50 that year.

I don't see much of a downside provided you never actually physically touch the goods.

So is it just stolen cc -> giftcards -> sell someone something they want via dropshipping through giftcard?

How does he break the paper trail between the stolen credit cards, the gift cards, and what's purchased?

Spamalot
Spamalot

Dropshipping numbnuts.

He buys gc's with stolen cards. Then offers to sell bigticket items to people online at (I'm assuming) a fairly discounted price. Then he buys them with the giftcard but ships them directly to the customer. He gets paid, customer gets his shit. It's all gravy.

Make sense? There's several lines of disassociation from him.

In order to trace him you'd need to:
Get in contact with the giftcard company
Who get in contact with the giftcard seller(who may or not be legit or cooperative)
Who then get in contact with the company of dropshipped item
Also in contact with the customer

All of this is very hard obviously to investigate and turn up with anything.

5mileys

So how does he actually get the gift cards?
Does he go into a store with a fake card and buy them?
Does he get them delivered to a fake address?
Or is there some loophole like you can buy "virtual" giftcards that aren't a physical object?

Probably online bro.

Giftcards are just a code. Plenty of sites sell them for BTC and creditcard. Tons.

I'm guessing this is pretty much how it works, you need to be able to accept the payment in some anonymous way though. Another difficult part is to actually get the gift cards, a lot of online stores have become harder to card over the years, Amazon does work with some social engineering though.

Just curious, where would you even advertise your products? You couldn't just post it to Craigslist, meet up with some guy and get your money and then ship it to his home address, and you wouldn't want him to send the money to your bank account either. Anonymous bank accounts doesn't exist any longer.

Oh man, back before my autism set in, I went completely ham with these coupons. My favorite were the Xbox live microsoft points cards. I hit up every single CVS and Walgreens in a 25 mile radius trying to get them and I ended up walking away with 10-15 of them ranging in value from $25 all the way up to $60 (only a couple of these). Sold them on eBay.

so you have to rush at some points

i've bought from well known markets and always make sure traders have good feedback

then again they mostly sell other cheap info aswell

i first bought a porn account then papa johns manager discount codes as a tester (no im not joking)

Anyways i don't feel sketched out i just act like i'm taking out my own money out

From my understanding most bank machines read the strip and not the chip

at least where i live with have swip/chip or nfc

but stating the obvious here never use it in a shop you will get fucked instantly.

Honestly I've been on some of these forums and even registered on a few webshops but I always got scurred when it came down to it.

I was reading on a forum once and people were talking about how they made off with $7000+ instore carding. Is it really that dangerous?

Like what's gonna happen?

Also wouldny it make more sense buying shit online and ordering it to a drop?

Stupidasole

Yes ordering to drop or taking from an ATM is the safest way

and in-store carding may be viable depending on what country you're in.

i've never done it myself i always prefer cash then buy it "legit"

At one time i even bought fake money and it worked in nearly every place

i would buy some gum then hand them a 20 so i would get back 19 in real cash

but its all going to shit now with the new type of notes

I even got busted in a subway and just acted surprised and thankfully they believed me

Yeah, I've been trying to figure out how he would go about getting an anonymous payment. I'm thinking he just sells the items on bitcoin markets, receives the bitcoins and then tumbles them to anonymize them. but then even still you have to exchange that into cash. Sounds like it'd leave a strong paper trail in my opinion. The thing is though I can't imagine a lot of countries have the resources to root out this type of crime.

He mentioned that his dad was convicted for fraud which reduces the suspect pool very low in a country of 2 million. This how they caught sabu from lulzsec (mentioned he had a previous conviction over IRC)

He mentioned that he donated to charity and takes regular trips to the sunshine coast on top of running E-commerce stores. This narrows the suspect pool down even more.

I used to buy Starbucks cards off the deep web. $100 cards for $20-$30, but they cost me nothing. I mined brand new CPU-based altcoins on customer computers (I work in IT) and traded them to bitcoin when the rates were favorable. All total I bought $2400 worth of Starbucks cards, at no cost to me.

I wasted the opportunity, though. Instead of reselling them, (I was worried about getting busted) I spent it all myself in a period of about three months. I drank a LOT of coffee, and occasionally I'd tell the barista "I want to buy coffee for everyone in line behind me." It was fun but I didn't get to profit off it.

scams scams scams
They're all scams. You won't ever see your physical cards "bought" off any of the "sellers" on websites from for example Hidden Wiki. They're all moderately elaborate scam sites with fake forums behind them. Look pretty or ugly, professional or not, usually offering 1-3 days express shipment 3-5 international, "feedback" system, "contact" sometimes autoshop, sometimes just email, usually at sigaint. The Green Machine forum, Wallstreet Forum, Paypal Cent, Premium Cards, Queen of Cards, Black&White. My personal favourite - "DreamWeavers" - lol.

Pretty much every single site on Hidden Wiki finance section + many others are a scam. So beware. Can look pretty convincing. If something seems to good to be true, it usually is. One of the sites even claims to use few third party escrow - clearnet sites. But do a little lurking and you'll find out these sites are scams too. Pay Btc to escrow, never see them again.

Doesn't matter if you order physical cards, paypal accounts, or simply card data. You'll never see it.

As for Alphabay and other markets out there- don't know yet. But from what I read / suspect is that card data is sold and re sold, so most of what you'll buy will be probably dead (burned) and unusable anyway.

Btw, from tens of thousands of offers on Alphabay, you won't find a since one for physical cloned card, curious, isn't it. Especially how "easily" obtainable they seem on darkweb.

If you're new and inexperienced, you shouldn't learn this stuff from anonymous people on the Internet.
Even when using the top guys in the industry it's still a big risk. Halfassing it using info found on Veeky Forums is just stacking risks on top of each other.

t. guy who does exactly this and wants to scare away the potential competition.
Just kidding, it makes sense, but I wouldn't rule it out as impossible. Just difficult for the average joe.
Making a couple thousand dollard a month doing low-tier shit isn't that uncommon.
It's the 6+ figure that's very hard and/or risky, but like you said, once you learn the necessary skills and get to know the "scene", it becomes way easier.

THIS IS CALLED CARDING. its old as fuck from the 80s

ITS DONE IN RETAIL STORES NOW DAYS they used to do internet orders with it.

NIGGERS GO IN WALMART, BUY PREPAID CREDIT CARDS WITH THESE FAKE CARDS THEY GET PRINTED WITH REAL CC NUMBERS THEY BUY ONLINE.

ONLY, NOBODY MANUALLY KEYS IN CARDS ANYMORE BECAUSE THEY KNOW NIGGERS DON'T REALLY HAVE ANY MONEY

SO NOW NIGGERS USE THIS TRICK TO BUY IPADS AND SHIT AND THEN RESELL THEM.

BUT NOW STORES LIKE WALMART PROSECUTE THESE PEOPLE.

NOBODY FALLS FOR THIS SHIT ANYMORE. NIGGERS TRY IT, IT WORKS SOME TIMES, BUT EVENTUALLY THEY GET CAUGHT AND CHARGED WITH FELONIES.

FACT, i helped stop a ring doing this shit years ago which encompassed most of the north east.

they busted 4 people in a van, later led to like 40 people total. but just that one van with 20k in cards printed in a storage bin, and a stamping machine and blank cards, probably some nigger gang.

go for it. try it. i hope you end up in prison.

this shit effects everyone. it pisses me off and i hope you realize that this topic doesn't belong here

AND YOUR PROBABLY A NIGGER. kill yourself.

Isn't the method in the OP different in terms of likelihood of getting caught?
I mean, how would they catch him if every single step is done digitally behind Tor?
They would need a huge multi-million dollar operation to even start looking for him, and they're not gonna do that unless he's a big fish like DPR or that hosting provider with all those CP sites.

desu, it seems you are most likely to get scammed this way, see

Spazyfool

Essentially yes, it is just a more niggardly way of doing it. The CC info still comes online, or by using a modified Square bit to steal the CC information if you have possession of the card (i.e., a cashier -- there is a video of a woman suuuuper pissed yelling at a Starbucks barista she caught doing it). Darknet info is just a higher, larger scale. It's pretty immoral. But people say it's not, because the bank or whatever will cover fraud. It's definitely shitty to do. Theoretically if you are careful enough though yes, you should be able to do it without leaking info. But you are a human so probably not, you will eventually fail unless you quit. It's a "sell now or hold for more profit" situation.

w8t4u

Yeah, It's clearly a significant risk, but getting scammed is not 100% guaranteed 100% of the time.
As it's been said before in the thread, it's a matter of testing the waters making small orders to see which one is real, and then getting serious with that.
Much like advertisers can spend tens of thousands in test campaigns before starting to make money once they find one that works.

Of course it's a shitty thing to do. Stealing is not suddenly ok just because the victim can afford the loss. Anyone who thinks people doing this aren't pieces of shit is just lying to himself.
That said, it's still an interesting thing to discuss IMO.

Theoretically if you are careful enough though yes, you should be able to do it without leaking info. But you are a human so probably not, you will eventually fail unless you quit. It's a "sell now or hold for more profit" situation.
What if you get creative with all the new ways people make money online, by doing a unique sort of "mix" of things without telling anybody?
This way it will be extra hard for the police to follow the trail, right?
Also if I'm good with technology, use the appropriate security measures on Tor (tight settings on noscript, requestpolicy, and about:config) and the OS itself (Linux system on an encrypted drive, running a VM with Tails for example), and follow them rigorously, use public wifi, etc. it would be extremely hard to make a mistake big enough to get me in trouble, especially since I would be just one of thousands of scumbags doing this kind of stuff online.
If I was an important target and had the police on me waiting for me to make the smallest mistake that they can exploit to find me, then yes.
A single guy making less than 10k a month... Very unlikely.

But I'm just talking out my ass here, so correct me if I'm wrong.

you just never know when you are going to make a mistake, and thinking you are safe is the best way to leak some info.

I have no doubt there are many people doing it but is it worth it? how much could you make without raising any flags? probably not a lot.

Yeah, kinda like DPR was found through a clearnet post on some forum about the website he was setting up, that was found because it was connected to SR.
And after millions of dollars and years of work, they managed to find this clue and it was still hard to get him.

If I hide all my traces from day 1, assuming I'm not making retarded mistakes, all they'd have would be an anonymous presence of some Dark Web guy who's impossible to connect to his IRL counterpart.

I'm never assuming I'm safe. That's the whole point.
The reason why I'd feel safe, it's because I'd never feel safe. If that makes sense.

Well, for starters I'm not American, but even if I was, I would fly low and keep my illegal earnings off the system and use them for everything I can pay for with cash, while I pay for the important stuff with my income from my legitimate day job.
Just like every other small criminal.

There's also the possibility of money laundering if you really want to make those earnings kosher.

read the part about opsec.
Those are all very basic common sense rules for anyone who's even a bit interested in online security, let alone someone who's actually risking prison doing it (which should obviously at least research everything thoroughly before starting).

Of course it's a shitty thing to do.

I agree that it is kinda a shitty thing to do but I'm all in favour of it since it should motivate people to use better technology like bitcoin (and for the same reason I won't get upset about blockchain analysis since Monero exists). I wouldn't bother doing it myself though. I'm sure there's a good reason cc info goes for less than $10 per card.

I don't think it would convince your average joe to use Bitcoin and similars in place of conventional systems like the CC, considering how relatively difficult it is, the fact that it's equally as easy (if not easier) to steal bitcoins than it is to steal CCs, and the fact that if you get your money stolen from your CC it's a headache at worst, while if you get your Bitcoins stolen, then you're basically SOL because you're never seeing them again.

I don't think blockchain technology will replace what we currently have, at least for a very long time.
It's good to have in addition to it, for its advantages and whatnot, but as a replacement, not so much.

Stark_Naked
Stark_Naked

Cus bitcoin exchanges don't get hacked all the time and if an attacker steals your bitcoin there's literally no liability or insurance to cover it...

The modern banking system isn't perfect but at the very least when your credit card gets stolen you get your money back in a week, and if your bank account gets fraudulent transfers it also gets fixed quickly thanks to Regulation E.

I'm sure there's a good reason cc info goes for less than $10 per card.

A fair portion of cards are invalid when they're sold like that, and also because the shit isn't a rare commodity.

Stolen cards are a dime a dozen, they're worth practically nothing. Of all the cards hacked only a small percentage gets sold and they get them in bulk. If someone is selling one million cards for $10 each on average that's a good deal for him.

haveahappyday

I mean it will encourage shops and sellers to adopt bitcoin and hopefully offer a discount vs credit cards if they accept them at all since bitcoin should save them on charge backs and general fraud. And if it's not the seller eating the loss it's banks which is also fine by me.

For consumers of course cards are safer and easier for them atm. But I don't expect consumers to be the driver of change. With as many cards to be exploited as you're saying it sounds like there's a lot of room for more people to do this and therefore a lot more strain on the current financial system. I think blockchain currencies are inevitable.

The problem is that you keep talking about credit card fraud as a key problem of the platform, while in reality nobody gives a shit because their money is going to come back within days if it gets stolen.
With Bitcoin it's lost forever (and it's also easier to steal. the problem is not that widespread only because cryptos aren't widespread. The day it will be used as much as credit cards are, fraud, scams, robberies and whatnot will be so much more widespread than CC fraud will ever be), and this alone would mean that people will prefer using conventional systems over cryptos for a very long time.
Unless it was forced on the people as the only alternative, most people will always prefer the current systems.

Right, the cc holder will get their money back but the iPad seller has lost their iPad forever. Yes there will be and is fraud with crypto but I believe there will be solutions, better solutions than what is possible with no marl money now. 2 of 2 multisig is a free and simple way of handling transactions more safely. Respected professional escrow providers will probably emerge, acting a bit like paypal does today.

We'll see then if your prediction comes true, and how much better these solutions will be compared to CCs and whatnot, but up until they're on par (and probably long after), we'll be stuck with the systems we currently have.

I don't think there'll be an international investigation for some random post on Veeky Forums, and even then, how would they connect my presence on the Dark Web to this Veeky Forums thread where I'm not saying anything specific to any DW business?
How would they know which one of the thousands (maybe even millions) of criminals on the DW made these posts?

You're assuming I wouldn't just keep everything off the books and use the illegal money for cash purchases while using my legitimate dayjob to pay for traceable expenses, like anyone who does this kind of thing would do.
If I'm not buying flashy cars or things like that, how are they going to find out about this money?

yeah that would be easier, but the problem is buying crypto with cards in general. a lot of exchanges won't accept them and most that do want some form of ID, the strictest want a webcam verification.

if you could find one that just takes the card then hypothetically you could buy bitcoins, move them around exchanges, trade for different coins, especially monero, move them around some more and then cash out with localbitcoins.

Afaik no one ever got caught using TOR given that:

1) You are using Tails or something else that isolates the OS
2) You have javascript off (and obviously all plugins off which automatically are off in Tor Browser)
3) Tails was updated

Literally no one ever got caught.

Of course, as soon as you give any details about yourself you are at risk. I think this idea sounds too good to be true. First of all, it's impossible and a gamble to know if the guy selling you the stolen CCs aren't the FEDs. Starting from there, the whole idea is just a big gamble and you might as well gamble your Bitcoin in Poloniex trying to get rich with some pump and dump.

Then you would also have problems trying to explain the IRS or whatever equivalent you have in your country, where did you got all that money from, specially if you buy a car or a house.

You're right, but is also worth mentioning that Tor is only safe when using .onion websites.

I still think the best scams was the coupons that 4chins use to have

You've clearly never heard of the real couponing scam then. Basically it's this: you run ads in magazines, websites and shit that stay at home mommies and NEETs might read promising big $$$ for mailing in envelopes stuffed with manufacturer coupons--you never pay the retarded fucks a dime. You've most likely seen these sorts of work at home ads before, and now you are about to learn what it's all about.

In the meantime you setup a fake retail business that exists only on paper, and then you redeem all those coupons that dipshits send you for free, as if you had collected them through legitimate sales at your non-existent store.

Manufacturers are not stupid. They know this shit goes on, and when people get too ballsy with it, those companies will prosecute the fuck out of such scammers. People who keep it on a smaller scale get away with it mostly, because the money being lost to fraudulent redemption, is peanuts compared to the revenue that these companies make through legitimate sales. Manufacturer's coupons still drive a significant amount of sales for certain products (cigarettes are a big one), thus they have no real incentive to fix what was a very broken system from day one.

But again, start trying to cash in millions of dollars worth through user's Shitty Little Fly-by-night Fake Store In Bumblefuck, Arkansas Inc., and you're headed to a federal penitentiary.
