01/27/2020State of the Darknet

Starting this year, we will provide you with a list of the top 5 darknet fraud sites each month. These are sites that are not market platforms in a classical sense, as they do not offer typical products like various kinds of drugs. Instead, this is a list of all “other purpose” sites that are useful on the darknet. They are evaluated by both historical and current performance. The amount of (successful) trades is the most important metric but we also look at a variety of products, support quality, and other factors.

1. UniCC

This is the site you want to go to when looking for credit card data. Whether you need a card for just a quick transfer or are looking for complete dumps with full information on the credit card, this site offers them all. It had a vast increase in its user numbers recently, and test purchases were all okay – our definite #1 for January.

You can find typical datasets such as card number, full name, expiry date, and CVV. But UniCC also offers unique full datasets including the pin number of the cards for ATM withdrawals. These premium offers have a higher price than datasets without pin but they payoff can be extremely worthwhile.

If you are looking for quick access to a small to medium amount of credit card datasets, UniCC should be one of your go-to sites. Because it has more vendors than most other sites, it is – due to the competition – one of the cheapest markets around. With the additional availability of full datasets including PINs, this is one of the few sites that offer credit card data that allows you to use a card writer to put the data on a blank card and then using it to withdraw cash at an ATM.

2. Joker’s Stash

In a close second spot for January, we find Joker’s Stash, another market that is specializes in financial information. Not only is it one of the largest but also the most professional: Regular high-volume customers receive dedicated support and are able to access the site via custom domains that are set up for them specifically.

Joker’s Stash is divided into three main sections: Dumps, cards, and SSNs. Dumps are the raw data taken from the magnetic strips of the cards (Track 2, sometimes also Track 1) while the card section has the full data associated with a credit card processed in human-readable form: card number, full name, expiration date, and CVV.

The SSN section is the latest addition where you can find personal data sets for $5 per record. You are able to search the database for the full name, date of birth, state, and city. The results will show if there are any matches and also if they are available for purchase or have already been bought. So you can also use this database to check if any specific SSNs have already been sold on Joker’s Stash. Obviously this database is also very useful for spear-phishers in that they are able to check if the record of a specific person has already been compromised.

Joker’s Stash is not a typical credit card market in that it usually offers exclusive, self-hacked dumps. This is underlined by the fact that quite often the datasets of large security breaches end up on Joker’s Stash first. This means the offered card data is unique and has not been used before (no resale of previously obtained credit card data). “This means – in our shop, you can buy only our own stuff, and our stuff you can buy only in our shop – nowhere else,” Joker’s Stash said in a post on a carding forum in October 2014.


The third place for January was secured by UAS RDP – standing for “Ultimate Anonyminity Service”. This site is useful for the more paranoid: If you need a really secure anonymous cover, you should look beyond VPN and consider using RDP access to a consumer box. RDP stands for Remote Desktop Protocol and basically allows you to remotely control another person’s computer without him knowing. Therefore, such an RDP access is sometimes also called “vicsocks”.

To get started on UAS RDP you will need to state a jabber account as part of the registration. For security purposes we recommend using a dedicated jabber account you use only for this site (always compartmentalize). You can use sites like Calyxinstitute you register jabber accounts for free.

Before you can fully use the site you will also need to deposit at least $10 to your account on UAS RDP. You can fund your account using Bitcoin or Litecoin. Once your deposit has been accepted you can search the available RDP systems by country, state, city, zip code, ISP and operating system. Additionally, there are switches to filter out direct IPs, default ports, admin rights, and several other criteria.

The results are listed in a clear table view which you can sort by any column. Once you have found an RDP system you like you have two options: Buying straight forward access costs you between $3 and $15 for 24 hours, depending on the system. But you also have the option to “buy out” which means you will buy the RDP access exclusively for you, ruling out having any “neighbors” on the system.

If you are looking for systems to access via RDP, UAS RDP should be one of the first sites to check. Not only are their prices reasonable but they also have a detailed help section including setup guides, an extensive refund police and support staff that is always available to you. That plus the fact that it is the biggest market site for RDP systems makes it one opf the sites you should bookmark if you plan to frequently use RDP systems.

4. Chipmixer

Chipmixer is a pretty unique service on the darknet and we recognize this by placing this site in the number 4 spot for January 2020. Chipmixer allows you to anonymize your bitcoin transfers, it is a so-called “Crypto Tumbler”. A crypto tumbler is a cryptocurrency mixing service that allows you to convert bitcoin into chips of equal value which you then cash out again. Essentially a crypto tumbler (or crypto mixing service) does the same as money laundering does for fiat currencies.

To achieve this ChipMixer creates Bitcoin addresses and funds them with specific sizes. These are valued at binary exponents (0.001, 0.002, 0.004, …, 4.096) so any amount can be converted easily. So, if you deposit 0.112 BTC you will receive three chips: A 0.064, a 0.032 and a 0.016 chip. All chips on the site have been funded beforehand so there is never a link between a deposit and following withdrawal of chips.

Furthermore, chips can be split or merged into the next larger or smaller chip, respectively. This adds another random element. For instance, if you received one 0.512 BTC chip and one 0.008 BTC, Blockchain analysis can prove that one of 0.512 BTC chips originating from here is yours. Since you can use split/merge, nobody knows if you’ve withdrawn big or small chips. It is not required to use, but the existence of this option increases your privacy.

ChipMixer is one of your best options when you want to make sure that your Bitcoins cannot be traced back to your cashout accounts. The registration is quick and easy, only beaten by the process of mixing Bitcoins. Deposits and cashouts also work fast and with no problems. And should you ever have an issue, a dedicated support staff stands ready to answer your questions.

5. Slilpp Market

The last entry for the January list is Slilpp market, another platform dedicated to the sale of financial information. Where UniCC is specialized in credit cards, Slilpp focuses on bank accounts instead.

Slilpp offers varying degrees of detailed information for bank accounts for a wide range of institutes including Paypal, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Suntrust, CreditOne, Capital One, Chase, Citi and many more. You can search for specific banks and other details in the filter settings.

Bank accounts are sorted into 4 different levels: The lowest tier (level 1) does not state a bank balance and can be purchased for just $2.50. Higher tier accounts have their balances confirmed and the price depends on the available balance. A refund policy covers cases where the promised balance is lower than the advertised one.

Slilpp is the first market site you should visit when you are looking for bank accounts (including PayPal). They offer hundreds of thousands of different items and you can filter easily by bank level or balance. Additionally, you are able to make bulk purchases. This plus a reasonable refund policy makes this one of the best sites for bank accounts and PayPal information.
