Credit Card Fraud Ideas by L.E. Pirate >>> a cDc publication.......1990 <<< -cDc- CULT OF THE DEAD COW -cDc- _______________________________________________________________________________ Hey there. L.E. Pirate here. Here's some ideas and info I've scraped up over my carding days that might just help you. Everything contained here will work and has been tried recently to check to see if businesses are still ignorant. -======- ORDERING -======- If you place an order to a big company (we'll use BEST as an example) from their catalog, they will ask for the catalog number. On the back of the catalog above the address there is a 6-8 digit number that has the info about the person who they sent the catalog to. If you received the catalog in the mail then using this card is not only foolish, but can result in a terrible situation. All they have to do is track down who they sent the catalog to and nail them. If the catalog is sent to you under your parents name, or your own, then you are generally screwed and wouldn't even think about ordering from BEST if they demand your catalog ID number. The solution is simple. Tell the operator that you picked up the catalog in a doctor's office or dentist's, etc., and there is no number on the catalog. They will always believe it, so good for you. OBTAINING CARDS: A FEW WAYS -==========================- Subsection: CASING FOR CARDS -==========================- If you need that new CD player, surfboard, etc. but you don't have the time to order it and you want it the next day, go casing! (Read other xORG files on how to case.) Go around looking for open cars or houses. Search the house for PLASTIC, yes, the actual plastic card. It will usually take the owner 24-48 hours to notice it is missing, or even longer. Do not take any cards you don't need (like Diner's Club, etc...), just take MC/VISA, cash, and their phone number. You might also want Exxon, Sunoco, gas cards to fuel up your car for the day, or whatever. But only take what you need. Get a VISA or MC and head to the local store. Make sure you have another card for ID, as in you take a VISA to pay for it and a MC for identification. Use it quickly (like within 24 hours) before it is reported as stolen. -===========================- Subsection: STUPID HOUSEWIVES -===========================- This is so easy. You go through someone's garbage and look for bank info and stuff like that.... anything that will have the name of their bank on it. The next day, take off school or work, whatever, and give the house a call. Make sure you get a house that the man goes to work and the wife stays home and cooks and cleans, like a real woman... ha (very sexist, eh?). Call up and do this: B=BITCH Y=YOU RING,RING B: HELLO? Y: HELLO THERE. THIS IS MARTY FINKLESTEIN FROM 1ST NATIONAL BUTTHOLE TRUST (or whatever their bank name is). IS THIS MRS. ABE DICKNOSE? B: YES? Y: SORRY TO BOTHER YOU. WE HAVE HAD A MIXUP IN OUR COMPUTER RECORDS, IT SEEMS THAT YOUR CREDIT FILE HAS BEEN ACCIDENTALLY WIPED OUT. B: OH MY. IS IT SERIOUS? Y: NOT REALLY. WE NEED SOME HELP FROM YOU, THOUGH. WE HAVE LOST YOUR CURRENT CREDIT CARD INFORMATION. IF YOU COULD PLEASE HELP TO MAKE THIS EASIER, YOU COULD EITHER STOP BY THE BANK TODAY OR TOMORROW OR YOU COULD GIVE ME YOUR CURRENT CREDIT CARD INFORMATION ON THE PHONE. WHICHEVER YOU PREFER. If they want to stop by the bank, just set up a fake appointment and hang up... they will, in most cases, be too busy to stop by, and will just give you the info right on the phone. This method has worked many times before. Try it out, it's a very easy and simple way to do it. -==================- Subsection: TRASHING -==================- Ugh. This is the dirtiest way to obtain info. Find a place that accepts cards and go into their garbage dumpsters. Try going to florists or places that don't put out messy shit. Don't go to food places, etc. You won't find anything you want there and most of the info will be covered with food and other crap anyways. Try florists because all you have to sift through is sweet, lovely, colorful flowers (isn't that cute?). Look generally for black carbon paper or printouts. If you go to insurance places or car dealerships, this can land you computer printouts with TRW and CBI information and account numbers on it, which are very valuable to an experienced hacker. Look out for half-carbons. They are carbon paper that have perforated edges down them so they can easily be ripped in half and discarded. What most places do, is throw one side into one can and the other side into another... so take both bags and put them together at home. Sure it will take a while, but it's worth it. The best time to trash is at night. It would be very handy to have a small, compact flashlight that you can use to go through the dumpster instead of just feeling around. I have found myself in trash cans many times, and when I get caught in there, I go, "Uhhh, have you seen my baseball?".... They'll usually take you for stupid, or even act like a bum, that will work. -============================- Subsection: INSIDE CONNECTIONS -============================- Make a friend that works at a place that takes a lot of cards. Instead of throwing them away, ask him for them. This guy I knew used to keep them all and give them away. If you can't find anyone, get yourself a job somewhere. The best place to work is a shoe store like Kinney Shoes or Athlete's Foot. -=============- CREDIT CHECKING -=============- The simplest way to get credit checker numbers is go into record stores. Last weekend I walked into a record store in Delaware and bought the new WarZone album. Right on the wall in big, girly, red letters was. "OUR MERCHANT NUMBER: XXXXXXXX. OUR 800 NUMBER: 1-800-XXX-XXXX" It had listings for VISA/MC/DISCOVER and just about everything else. I pulled out my trusty pen while the chick was opening the register and I wrote it on my hand. I had just enough time to copy down the VISA/MC one when she looked up. Try record places, army/navy stores, shoe stores, and places that need to check credit on cards. Remember, though, that checking the credit on a card actually deducts that amount from the card (since they assume the business is checking during a purchase). Check for small amounts, just to see if the card is still good... you don't want to make it useless without getting anything! Or, you might. Whatever. -========- EXPLOITING -========- So, you found a driver's license lying in the street while walking downtown, eh? You think to yourself, "BIG DEAL." Nononononono. Go trash at an insurance place and get ahold of CBI and TRW printouts. The printouts will contain everything buffered when the person called CBI or TRW and will even include an access port number. Call up CBI or TRW and enter exactly what is on the printout; except in place of the person's name on the printout, put the name of the person and address, etc. in the computer and buffer what is shown. Mail the information - the driver's license info, the address, card numbers, credit info... everything to the person. Find your own way to exploit it to your own advantage. -=====- CLOSING -=====- Well, that is just some short info on some various CCF things you can do and things that can help you. Hope it was educational, not to mention thrilling... _ _ _____________________________________________________________________ /((___))\|The Convent..........619/475-6187 The Dead Zone.........214/522-5321 [ x x ] |Demon Roach Undrgrnd.806/794-4362 The People Farm.......916/673-8412 \ / |PURE NIHILISM..........new # soon Ripco.................312/528-5020 (' ') |Tequila Willy's GSC..209/526-3194 The Works.............617/861-8976 (U) |===================================================================== .ooM |(c)1990 cDc communications by L.E.
