‘Cardplanet’ Operator Gets 9 years Sentence

The carding store victimized the U.S. citizens and is responsible for $20 million worth fraudulent purchases. The cybercriminal was responsible for running a “carding” website on the Dark Web for going to federal prison for 9 years for selling stolen consumer payment information.
Aleksei Burkov, the operator of a website called “Cardplanet,” has sold hundreds of thousands of debit- and credit card numbers that had been hacked.
