Anarchy: Credit Card Fraud

It would be a small leap in some people's minds to go from stealing telephone

connection time from a long distance company (by scanning through some access

numbers and looking for valid ones) to using other acquired numbers (from

carbons and stolen databases) to get free computer equipment and airline

tickets. This, apparently, was the draw of Credit Card Fraud, where stolen

credit card numbers were used to charge thousands of dollars for whatever

a budding felon decided they wanted to risk years of jail time for.

Even now, there's really no justification or warm glow associated with

credit card fraud, but the following files promote the cavalier and

on-the-edge approach to this second, deeper level of using "codes".

Zen and the Art of Credit Card Fraud

It is interesting to note that throughout the 1980's, the vast majority

of busts for hackers came from credit card fraud busts. If you leaf through

some of the textfiles on this site that mention busts, you will find that

in almost all the files, they mention as an aside that what got the

authorities interested in them was some spate of carding. While the

law was unable to quantify exploration or interaction with computers,

the cold transfer of material goods they could understand.
