Note that there are nearly 7,000 results and so – like any thoroughly modern digital market – there are plenty of ways to narrow your search with filters. For example, you can limit yourself to dumps that are sold through an escrow system. Also note that, while the market seen above has nearly 60,000 listings under “Digital Goods”, it has even more under “Drugs”. Some dark markets just sell drugs, while others traffic in everything from pills and pot to stolen payment cards and pornography, possibly with a side order of firearms. Shops that specialize in selling stolen payment card data have evolved from what used to be called carding forums. These days carding sites are no longer text-based backwaters of the internet. Some are out in the open and feature slick websites and aggressive advertising campaigns, like this one from Carding Mafia.
