Yup... these dudes make a LOT of money. However, wealth on the competitive field generally doesn't last too long. Creative wealth lasts.
The media and FBI always over estimates the losses that were prevented. Usually what they do is take every single card that was in their database and multiply it by $500. So say some hacker hacks a website and gets 10,000 "credit card information sets" or whatever it is they call them, the FBI will claim that the hacker was responsible for $5,000,000 in losses.
In reality, these scammers rarely make the money that the media portrays. The few hackers at the top probably make a ton, but everyone else likely makes peanuts.
"The money some of these gangs make is unbelievable!"
Carding? Not worth at all... They got arrested at the end...
And about the money, i agree, they make alot...
It doesn't matter what else the FBI does. Eric Holder sold assault weapons to the mexican drug cartels, and isn't sitting in prison. Kind of undermines the FBI's credibility. Hoover had files on all his political enemies. Holder's information must be pretty good, to keep him out of prison, not even being charge, or even talked about in the mainstream media very much. I'm more worried about the FBI than I am the credit card thieves.
i know a russian forum where they are openly giving away the cc details lol
