Until Wednesday one of the best public sources of information on how to use a stolen credit card number, forge a drivers license, defeat a burglar alarm or silence a firearm was a website under the control of the U.S. Secret Service. As a jaunty flourish in its high-profile roundup of fraudsters and forgers last Thursday, the agency took over Shadowcrew.com, a New Jersey-based online crime bazaar that sits at the center of the government's "Operation Firewall" investigation. Officials locked out the user accounts and swapped in a new front page featuring a Secret Service banner, an image of a prison cell, and a list of federal charges against some site members.

Good work Scarlett, it won't be long before you get a call from the Daily Planet

Jimmy Olsen, maybe Lois Lane... :thumbsup: In all seriousness, 4 million in damages, 4,000 members...hmmm, lets do the math:

4KBad guys=4MBunch of harm. Not a good equation, huh?

Let's hear it for the F.B.I!!!!!! :thumbsup: So very cool how they changed the home page. The Mission Impossible track was a nice touch. I got a big kick out of that.




In all seriousness. Thanks a bunch guys! I appreciate all the support. I'm loving this new position. I'm just thrilled to be helping Grinler out in this way. This site and it's members have been so helpful to me in so many ways. I'm happy to be able to give a little back in return. Have a good night all!
