Germany: Crackdown Against World's Largest Dark-Net Websites

Police in the European country of Germany have caught the operator of the world's largest fake online marketing network.

According to Agence France-Presse (AFP), German prosecutors say police in the Oldenburg city have arrested a 24-year-old Australian man operating the world's largest 'dark net' system.

According to prosecutors, all kinds of drugs, fake credit cards, fake mobile SIMs and other materials used online were being sold illegally under the seized illegal network.

The arrested Dark Net had more than 500,000 users worldwide and was illegally selling its products under 2,400 vendors or vendors.

So far, 320,000 transactions have been made under the seized darknet, through which 4,650 bitcoins and 12,800 money coins have been traded.

The current market value of the illegal network is US کروڑ 17 million or more than 2 billion Pakistani rupees.

The network was run by a 24-year-old Australian man and was joined by others from several European countries.

Initially, German police arrested three Dutch, three German and one Bulgarian citizen in September 2019 on suspicion of the network.

The main Australian, who runs the Dark Net system, was arrested by German police while fleeing Germany near the Danish-German border, and police also seized 20 servers set up in Ukraine and Moldova for the network.

Following the arrest of the owner of the world's largest darknet system, US intelligence agencies have also begun investigating whether the network's branches are operating in the United States.

In addition, several European countries, in conjunction with the German police, expanded the scope of the investigation.

It is thought that the network will run its affiliate network in several European countries and the United States, but it is too early to say.

According to German officials, the fake network's revenue increased during the Corona epidemic last year when businesses were suspended due to the lockdown.

Prosecutions were also launched in German courts on various charges against all the arrested Dark Net operators.
