Abstract: Underground online forums enable trades of illicit services and stolen goods. Carding forums, in particular, are known for trading stolen financial information. To tackle payment card fraud, it is therefore important to understand the characteristics of these forums and the activity of miscreants using them. To this end, we studied five underground forums, collected data from them for three months, and analysed the data. This analysis revolves around the products available on those forums, their prices, and the trio of seller prolificacy, seller specialisation, and reputation. Interesting parallels between the underground carding economy and legitimate markets will also be discussed.
