Hi, new member so this will be my first post. A while ago (3-4 years) there was a rash of "joe-jobs" that attacked certain carding sites, such as shadowcrew.com, carderplant.com, darkprofits.com and similar. These joe-jobs would make asinine claims like "your credit card has been charged..." or offered all sorts of illegal services, the point being to bring"heat" on these sites. Whoever were responsible for the joe-jobs were themselves guilty of spamming and operating "bot-nets" to perpetrate the spam. Then it was revealed the person (or one ofthe persons) responsible for the joe-jobs was an FBI informant who turned criminal, one "David Renshaw Thomas" who went by the moniker "El Mariachi". This person operated a crime forum named "Thegrifters.net." He made the claim the joe-jobs were being done in tandem with the efforts of anti-carding organizations in order to shut down the (competing) carding sites, with the exception of Thegrifters.net. Has there ever been a follow up to these joe-jobs? What is the law regarding joe-jobs targeting carding or criminal oriented web sites? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
