Many people understand the possibility of identity theft. We hear about it constantly on the news and other media outlets. However, very few people know why or how this happens. Well, truth be told it happens in numerous ways and often the theft has little interest in using the lifted credit card information.
When it comes to credit card theft, the two most popular methods of stealing ones credit card information is either through either hacking, or the use of card skimmers. Card skimmers are a covert electronics device, usually paired with a small hidden camera. They are then placed over the credit card reader attached to gas pumps, ATMs and various other automated machines that accept bank or credit cards. When the card goes in, the skimmer records the data on it. Credit Card thieves can lift thousands of credit card information in the matter of a week if their skimmer is installed in a popular location.
Of course the thief mostly likely won’t be able to go around using all of these card numbers to make purchases, so they opt to sell these credit card dumps as fast as possible over the internet.
Lucky for those credit card thieves, the Popular Darknet Marketplace, AlphaBay Market has fine tuned a new feature they released back in May to streamline the sales of these card fulls. Those out shopping for a credit card fulls will love the easy to navigate and incredibly convenient system. The automated card system has a very useful filter, which allows shoppers to easily search the listings of cards based off various information such as Name, Location, SSN, Price and Exp to name a few.
“We now have a fully-functional autoshop for all members looking to buy fulls or credit cards! The link is on the top-left of the page. You can search by DOB, BIN, city, state, and much more. The process is completely automated. All cards are dispatched immediately, and the funds are released to the vendor 30 minutes later. We also added support for Jabber notifications when an order is placed so you stay alerted at all times.”
According to DeepDotWeb who spoke with the AlphaBay Market admin, AlphaBay plans on releasing a similar platform for any type of hacked online accounts.
