Robert Siciliano Identity Theft Expert
The wild wild web never ceases to amaze me. My daily routine consists of a tremendous amount of research that keeps me on top of what is new and ahead of what is next in information and personal security. I spend about 3 hours daily simply “consuming” information via news alerts, feeds, and subscriptions, then breaking it down for others.
Today I got a shocker in my Google News Alerts. Google searches for keywords all day and when your predetermined news alerts are on a site that Google indexes (for whatever reason) they then show up in your inbox.
Today, under “ATM Security” I get this:
I SELL CCV2,tracks+ ATM PIN,FULLZ, BANK LOGIN, BANK TRANSFER… PRICE FOR CCV us (visa or master)= 2$ us (amex or dis)= 3$ uk (visa or master)= 4$ uk (amex or dis )= 6$ US Amex 3 $ UK master/visa 6$ … All Our PayPa Acc Have Full Info And With Email Access and With All Security Answer . And With Orginal Ip And A Program For Fake Your System Ip To Orgina Ip For Full Access To PayPal Acc. Ebay Login : Fresh And Verified And Unlimited Ebay Accountâ€
This guy is a carder black hat hacker selling raw data called “Fullz” and “Dumps”. There are live examples including full data on citizens of many countries including names, addresses, phones, emails, bank account, credit cards, CCV2, Paypal accounts logins, you name it.
On his “Rates and Services” page he states:

Unfortunately this is what we have to contend with. Our raw data being sold on the open market isn’t new, it’s something thats been going on for a while. But the fact that it’s so prevalent that its picked up in Google News Alerts, tells me it’s not getting any better.
Most of the data hacked in the preceding relates to account takeover but can also lead to new account fraud. In many cases it’s your own PC that’s compromised. In other hacks it’s a retailers or a banks. Either way you are ultimately responsible for the chargers unless you do something about it.
- Check your credit card statements often. Refute unauthorized charged within 60 days to be made whole by the issuing bank.
- Anytime you ever receive a phish email asking for personal information, credit information, banking etc, do not enter it. Just hit delete. Often victims will receive and email from what looks like a trusted source but is actually a phish.
- Install and update antivirus protection.If your PC is infected with a virus that allows the remote control of your PC, a criminal can get all your important files
- Check out my spyware killer. Even if your PC has spyware that logs your account information while you are typing in your browser, this software scrambles the data making it useless to the thief.
- Get a credit freeze. Go to ConsumersUnion.org and follow the steps for your particular state. This is an absolutely necessary tool to secure your credit. In most cases, it prevents new accounts from being opened in your name. This makes your Social Security number useless to a potential identity thief.
- Invest in Intelius identity theft protection and prevention. Not all forms of identity theft protection can be prevented, but identity theft protection services can dramatically reduce your risk. (Disclosures)
