Hackers use Dark Net for Credit Card Fraud

The Internet is full of unknowns and one of these unknowns is the dark net. Dark net is an underground system of anonymous websites that are untraceable. In this system, you can launder money, hire a hit man, and get guns. Unfortunately, the dark net is also a place to buy hacked credit card numbers in bulk. There are hundreds of millions of stolen card numbers on this system.

What these card hackers usually do is make small transactions at a time, also known as micro fraud. These small transactions eventually add up to outrageous numbers. Most people do not notice a small transaction so it is important to always check your credit card statement daily to prevent fraud.
