Scammer Used Fake Court Order to Take Over Dark Web Drug Market Directory
A scammer used a fake court order to convince a domain registrar to transfer ownership of a domain that lists dark web drug markets, and then used that to point the sites to their own copies of the markets designed to steal peoples’ bitcoin.
Hackers often make lookalike sites of dark web markets, but the use of a fake court order is unusual. It bears some similarity to how scammers use fake trademarks to convince Instagram to transfer ownership of valuable usernames.
