  • You finally picked up the courage to visit the dark web and you took every necessary

  • precaution to stay invisible to the authorities.

  • At first, you were only going to look around and not actually purchase anything, but after

  • a few of your buddies came around to your house you all decided you'd buy a big bag

  • of illegal pillsnot only that, after a few drinks you watched a video you shouldn't

  • have watched.

  • You weren't concerned, you used a VPN, your IP address couldn't be seen by any prying

  • eyes.

  • And then, BOOM, one day the cops burst through your door.

  • How on Earth did that happen?

  • How did they find you?

  • That's what we'll discuss today.

  • 5.

  • Hacking First of all, you should know that a lot of

  • people use the dark web for good reasons.

  • Maybe they are journalists, or political dissidents in countries with strict regimes, so some

  • human right advocates are happy that the authorities can't find people in the dark web.

  • That's why it was controversial when a cybercriminal named Eric Eoin Marques was arrested in 2013

  • and later got a prison sentence of 30 years.

  • This guy was certainly in the wrong, and was hosting websites within the dark that were

  • selling drugs, hacking techniques and money-laundering operations.

  • He was huge, and it's thought his cloud computing company, Freedom Hosting, was hosting

  • almost half of the sketchy websites within the dark web.

  • The FBI got him.

  • They found his server in France and subsequently tracked him down to Ireland.

  • This shouldn't have happened of course.

  • The Tor network this guy used was supposed to be impenetrable.

  • But then one day users started seeing something weird, a new code running in websites hosted

  • by Freedom Hosting.

  • Suddenly, all the websites went down.

  • That weird code exploited a Firefox vulnerability and so not only did the websites go down,

  • but people using those websites were unmasked.

  • Well, they were until they could update their software.

  • Tens of thousands of IP addresses were exposed and some of those people that were exposed

  • were arrested.

  • That could have been you and you might have been seen buying bags of Columbia's finest

  • powder, but private email systems were also run on Freedom Hosting so journalists or freedom

  • fighters may also have been exposed.

  • So, that's one way you could be found out using the dark web.

  • The government might get its crack team of hackers together and create a code that exploits

  • a vulnerability in some software.

  • It might not mean they come knocking at your door, but your name will certainly be saved

  • in the FBI's database.

  • You've been flagged.

  • Thousands of people around the world have been arrested this way.

  • In the U.S., the FBI won't say how it hacks its way into the dark web, while in other

  • countries, governments also keep their surveillance under wraps.

  • In the U.K., the government gives its intelligence agencies something calledBulk Powers”,

  • which allows them to spy on people.

  • The thing is, the agencies don't have to submit any information to the court as to

  • exactly how they got you.

  • That remains a secret.

  • If you're worried about being hacked by the government though, wait till you hear

  • how they can get you without hacking you at all!

  • 4.

  • Cops go undercover Sometimes the government doesn't really

  • have to get technical... the authorities can use techniques they use on the streetscops

  • can go undercover.

  • Let's say you're on the dark web and you find a place where you can get the illegal

  • substance MDMA.

  • All the reviews are positive regarding the seller, so you think, ok, I'll take 500

  • pills because you're in college and you want to pay your tuition fees off.

  • Well, you might just be buying your pills from a cop who's been undercover posing as

  • Rick the Raver, the merchant of molly.

  • Time and again cops have done this, with drugs, guns, poisons and images of children.

  • You see, you buy the stuff and you remain anonymous, but you still have to get your

  • contraband delivered.

  • That's when the cops can grab you.

  • There are ethical concerns, though.

  • The cops can't oversell their stuff.

  • They can't say, “Hey, take those 500 pills, but I've got some great cocaine, too.

  • Do you want that?”

  • That's called entrapment.

  • They can't say, take 1,000 pills and I'll throw in a gun.

  • That's just not ethical.

  • Then you've got those images of kids that float around the dark web.

  • There has been a lot of controversy regarding the FBI putting out their own images and setting

  • up what is called a “honey pot.”

  • The problem is, once those images are out there they can be copied and spread all over

  • the web.

  • But you can avoid in-person delivery and avoid an undercover agent, right?

  • Well, if you think other means of scoring your gear are safe, stay tuned...

  • 3.

  • The postal service You don't have to be set up to have the

  • cops knocking at your door.

  • A huge amount of contraband is seized before it even gets to the buyer.

  • The post office can intercept a package, find a few ounces of cocaine, and then they can

  • get in touch with the police.

  • The police can then start an investigation, and while the buyer might not get arrested

  • because the package never arrived, the cops in the past have watched post office videos

  • and have been able to arrest the sender of the package, or packages.

  • In other cases they weren't able to find the seller, so police allowed the post office

  • to deliver the package in what they called a, “controlled delivery.”

  • As soon as you pick it up, they swoop in on you.

  • It's unlikely police will get involved if someone is buying, say, one single pill of

  • something, but if the package is big enough, there is always a risk.

  • Sometimes though, you can get busted and it's not even your fault!

  • 2.

  • A dealer's data One outstanding case of someone being caught

  • selling drugs on the dark web was a kid in Germany who was arrested by police in 2015.

  • This 20-year old guy, who still lived with his mom, was found with a whopping 320 kilograms

  • of drugs in his bedroom.

  • Yep, you heard that right.

  • He pretty much ran a drug empire from his bedroom and sold drugs from the dark web to

  • people in Germany and in countries all over the world.

  • He would usually use a PO Box, not a house or apartment number, and the person who picked

  • the package was never the person's name on the package.

  • If the person was ever caught picking up the drugs, he or she could just say, “Hey, that's

  • not my name.”

  • The thing is, this kid still needed to pick up the drugs.

  • 320 kilos is quite a pile of powders and pills, and it was when he was picking up one of his

  • packages that the cops got him.

  • But guess what, when the cops looked on this kid's hard drive they found all the names

  • and emails of all the people he'd been selling to.

  • That included guys just buying for personal usewhich was not much use to the cops

  • but it also included bulk buyers who were selling on the streets of Germany and beyond.

  • Someone on the dark web managed to get to this kids profile and leave a message.

  • That message read, “Dealers, run for your lives.”

  • That's the thing with the dark webif someone else gets caught, your information

  • might be on their computer.

  • That kid became a millionaire very fast, but now he's in prison and will be for possibly

  • another decade.

  • The problem is, no sooner than the kid was behind bars, someone else had taken over his

  • dark web domain.

  • Sometimes though, you can get busted without even visiting the dark web!

  • 1.

  • Advertising The last way people are caught is when they

  • advertise their dark web marketplace on the very visible normal web that we all use.

  • Yep, they use the normal web to direct people to the dark web.

  • It's a little silly, but Ross Ulbricht, the guy that ran the notorious Silk Road marketplace,

  • did just that.

  • He ran ads on a bitcoin web forum for the Silk Road, and those ads could be traced back

  • to him.

  • For such a smart guy, he definitely missed several big brain moments.

  • Now you need to watch this show, “Why You Should Never Visit The Dark Webor watch

  • this show, “Can You Really Order A Mystery Box from The Dark Web?”

You finally picked up the courage to visit the dark web and you took every necessary
