Compromised PayPal accounts are a valuable commodity in the criminal underground, and crooks frequently trade them in shadowy online forums. Many of the PayPal accounts for sale at iProfit. The creator of iProfit. Higher-balance verified accounts appear to be priced at between 8 to 12 percent of their total balance. Another account, from Gwynn in Tallmadge Ohio? The proprietors of iProfit. It was long considered dead, but. Vendor of Stolen Bank Cards Hacked …I recently wrote about an online service that was selling access to stolen credit and debit card data.
That post received a lot of attention, but criminal bazaars are a dime a dozen. The real news is that few of these fraud shops are secure enough to keep their stock of stolen data from being pilfered by thieves.

Both comments and pings are currently closed. I presume you meant to say that information such as this enables the rise of new criminals. Yes there is always that danger, but the advantage is that greater publicity of the bad guys enables their shut down faster. And Brian is to be commended for shouting the loudest and I suppose he does have his LEO channels to which is passes on his information. I believe most of them have a vetting process of some sort i.
Actually Russ, prior to this article, the registration for iProfit. No prior connections or permission needed. Good post Brian, I loved that they are using cloudflare. And what about refund policy? I sent it to the PayPal abuse email, and they confirmed it was a phishing email. These can be very convincing messages, because all they indicate is that you need to log on to your account to check a new customer agreement, or some other very convincing innocuous maintenance request.
Thank you for advertising my shop, my old advertiser was not near as good as you.. What a l33t haxor! Yes, your secret is safe with them! Such a pointless reply considering the context of the original statement. Crime is about intent and how the technology is used. Oh Brian, surely you are aware that many folks use multiple IP hops when conducting this type of business online. As for the others, and you know who you are, good job pretending that everybody you find unsavory is automatically some kind of degenerate social failure.
Are you members of the Tea Party as well? I ask because your opportunistic arrogance has a startlingly similar odor. Nice crowd you have here. Thanks for proving my point, dweebs. I can confirm this because the screen shot he posted matches the information in the now reversed fraudulent PayPal payment that was made to my account. There has not been a civilised society in history where theft has been condoned — this is because humans are at a higher level than animals.
You however, for whatever reason probably some sort of guilt issue I imagine seem to be bent on defending criminals. Once can only hope that you yourself becomes such a victim so that you can be disabused of this viewpoint you hold. Such a foul mouth , got caught you misfit. New word for miscreant a bottom feeder.
Yeah, and you raise another obvious explanation: Some people use the same password for their PayPal account that they do for their email account they used to register the PayPal account. The guy giving you a donation was hilarious. Is this guy just an incompetent businessman giving his assets away in a massive firesale?
Or has the supply of stolen credentials and suppliers increased enough to justify such low prices? Since you probably visited blackservice, can you tell me if prices there have experienced a similarly large drop? What are they doing?
Collecting them for recreation? Nor did I need the temptation during hard financial times. Hence, I read articles from groups like Krebs, Wired, etc. They had those prices and offers, although some were higher. Here is an example of the prices.
Wow have prices gone down. I appreciate the update. Plenty of people would choose less rewards for less risk. Using extreme profanity and impersonating the author of this blog are the surest ways to have your comments removed and further comments banned.
When I am thinking a bit about that — we have a problem here , and it is the Paypal itself. I use it everywhere possible instead of credit card, others i know also and what exactly does this money-processing service offer us to secure our money?
Not much i have to say. Please try again later. Actually, Brian — did you by any chance have any communication with Paypal about this you could share? This is disgusting guys, at least try to show people that us carders are mature adults..
Black service his forum and Iprofit his shop are both horrible examples of what the REAL carding scene is. Please guys grow up and act like mature men, instead of children running wild on the internet. Multiple wide ranging studies have shown criminal offenders have this trait.
Same threat has been made by other people multiple times, sometime they even carried through on their threats. Oh and look the site is still here. I seriously doubt you can carry through with this threat in any case, your posts smack of someone a bit carried away with talking the talk to make themselves feel like a big man.
