This month’s issue contained a very interesting article on a guy name Max Butler. To quickly summarize – when the Fed’s busted him, his laptop had over 1 million credit card numbers. If you want an interesting read into the mind of someone who basically took over the underground market, then read the article.
There is also a cool 4 minute video that shows the machines used to actually print the plastic cards.
