Carding site operator sentenced to 90 months in prison

Not sure this would be the place for this, but it does concern justice for consumers victimized by hacked information.


A Macedonian accused of selling over 181,000 stolen credit card details on an underground website he operated between August 2010 and January 2014 has been sentenced to 90 months in prison after previously pleading guilty to access device fraud and aggravated identity theft.

He was also ordered to forfeit $250,000 and pay restitution, the exact sum to be determined at a later stage.

The accused – Djevair Ametovski, aka ‘codeshop,’ ‘sindrom’ and ‘sindromx,’
was arrested by Slovenian authorities in January 2014 and extradited to the United States in May 2016 for crimes linked to a site he https://www.justice.gov/usao-edny/pr/operator-global-cybercrime-marketplace-sentenced-90-months-imprisonmentcreated for the sale of card data and other personal information.

Don't remember hearing about this case any earlier, but it could have been "in the news" at an earlier date.

1. Yes, this belongs here..Thank YOU!!! The crook will get 90 months to think about about his crooked

ideas. I am reasonably sure that this is not exactly what he expected. Especially being ..extradited to the United States for punishment...

...It shows how they work, .... 181,000 stolen credit card details, on an underground website...

Yes, they operate ..."underground websites" and other kind of ideas.

Thank You for reporting this, and I am glad and happy that some of them get caught and pay a penalty. (yes, quite a big penalty)
