The latest site on our research list is ss209.net. What we want to learn today is whether this dump site has the credit card fullz and other details we’re looking for or whether it’s a scam that should be avoided.
we get to the home screen, we’re presented with a cartoon
representation of Popeye, smiling for a mugshot against a brick wall
background. The site proclaims its title as Sailor’s Silence, which
makes us think of pirates. Are they the good kind that share their
bounty or the bad kind that steal from all? We’ll soon find out.
Before we see what the site’s about, we want to look a little behind the scenes. What we find is that the IP address is based out of Russia, with the registrar being RU-CENTER. The site was created on 2018-03-22 and is currently set to expire on 2020-03-22. This site is just over a year old. We wish it was older, but we’ll keep this info in mind as we dig deeper.
Back to the site: Once you scroll past the flashy imaging, we find that the news section is updated every single day. There’s definitely some dedication here. Going back up, we see a button called Guide. This is pretty impressive as it displays links to about 20 tutorials ranging from “software for carding” to “carding cvv for beginners”. This site seems dedicated to the game, going so far as to educate newcomers. When it comes to registering, the site asks for username, password, ICQ and Jabber, plus requires a captcha. Hitting “sign up” displays a message that the account was successfully created and then redirects to the homepage so we can log in.
inside, there’s a lot to take in. Front and center are graphics of
various credit cards, with some of the info obscured. These are
labeled as recommendations, and they range from classic Visa debit
cards to Mastercards from Italy. On the left side, we see links for
news, dumps, packs, cc, no-cvv, billing, cart, orders, tickets, and
profile. On the right, there’s a chat box, but it’s rather boring
as users only say “hi” to each other. At the top of the page,
there’s a button called “rules”, which takes us to a chat with
support, and another link to the guides from the homepage.
decide to jump in by seeing what’s available under the “packs”
category. This where you can place bulk orders, such as 50 or 500
dumps. The “cc” page displays a filter and then search results
below. We did a test search for Visa cards in the U.S., and we were
presented with lots of options. The filter offers several ways to
sort the data, including card type, track, and even location, with
the option to enter specific zip codes. The pages for dumps and
no-cvv are similar.
we head over to the billing page to see how we can fund our account.
We find that the site offers four options: Bitcoin, Litecoin,
BitcoinCash, and Dash. To fund your account, you have to create a
wallet, which will then retain your data for future use. There’s a
button to calculate conversion, and then you simply select your
payment method to see the address to which you’ll send payment.
far, this site looks okay. But we know that appearances are just
that. We want to learn more about this place to see if it’s legit
or just made to look that way. Our next step of research is to see
what other people have to say about the site. We scoured forums, and
we didn’t find good news. The website was actually identified as
being a scam on two different lists that we found. We know that you
can’t believe everything you see on the net, and we definitely
think that one of the websites running hosting a list was just an
advertisement for a competitor. However, the other site didn’t seem
to have anything to gain by calling out ss209.net as a scam.
spent a lot of time reviewing ss209.net, and our consensus is that
the site looks legit, but we are concerned with the fact that some
people were calling it out as a scam. We wonder if the hip, flashy
images are meant to put you at ease, just to steal your money. What
do you guys think? If you’ve made purchases with ss209.net before,
tell us more about how it went in the comments.
