    Have you ever had problem with the law because of your black hat activities?
    Anything like copyright infringement, spam, etc? Problem because you were creating fake accounts on social network?

    I'm curious of hearing your misadventures.... just to know what to expect in the worst case :p

    Thank God, I am still safe :) But you should read lawsuits websites for case studies. There are many people who had experienced such bad situations. By the way nice question. we should be aware of this.

    Dont do the crime if you cant do the time :D
    You gotta pay the cost to be the boss sometimes. If the big dogs are willing to invest the right amount of money, then there is no way possible to be 100% anonymous, so just make sure it is not worth their time and money to pursue you

    Oh yeah, all the time!

    Expect police chases, fast cars, explosions, deadly shootouts with the FBI, more explosions, and blonde damsels in distress who have nothing to do with what you're trying to accomplish. Oh, and you'll have to zoom and enhance on a lot of stuff, too.

    Hey, nobody said the life of a black hat would be easy!

    The Blackhat Movie with Liam(or was it Chris?) Hemsworth was the biggest joke I've ever seen - wasn't even worth the bandwidth that I used to torrent it, I feel so bad for the people that actually paid to see it.

    Will upload some funny C&D letters I've gotten tomorrow, from private corps and alphabet soup. Nothing ever came from any of it, C&D letter I just laugh at and reply with "go fuck yourself".

    By "black hat" I mean any activity which is "borderline" or "illegal": misrepresentation, copyright infringement, identity theft, collecting emails illegally, fake giveaways, spam, etc, etc etc.

    And by "problems" I mean anything that will have "consequences": from just a fine, to criminal charges, etc, etc etc.

    ;)
