A Russian citizen has become jailed for 30 months for his role in selling stolen bank card information as well as other data employed to fuel further criminal activity.

It sold information including gamer account logins, along with the private information of US citizens not confined to names, current addresses, telephone numbers, and also at times Social Security numbers.
Deer.io was published who are only October 2013 and was shut down following Firsov’s arrest in March 2020 after an operation by which the FBI purchased 1,100 gamer accounts as well as the personal information more than 3,600 Americans.
The prosecutor world market url; relevant resource site – https://nineteenthhole.golf/forums/topic/top-5-quotes-on-world-market-onion/, asserted that Firsov knew deer.io was selling stolen and counterfeit accounts when he built the platform.
“Also, deer.io was easily searchable, so anyone – including Firsov – could search the working platform for stolen US accounts and data,” the release reads.
“Though it sold stolen accounts, deer.io isn’t cloaked in secrecy and required no special password for access, because everything was depletes Russia, and American police officers could gain no foothold.”
‘Sending a message’

“Today’s sentence sends an email – conducting criminal activity external to the United States does not mean you will be away from reach.
“The FBI will identify and pursue criminal actors in the cyber-sphere, wherever they operate, and try to bring the theifs to justice within a United States court.”
