Lord Cyric and www.DarkMarket.ws — Huge identity theft syndicate hides behind government
I was looking to purchase a laptop computer at wholesale and someone I had spoken to many times in a chat room sent me to someone who calls himself "Lord Cyric" from Canada. "Lord Cyric" assured me that he could get me a great price on a new laptop and ship it to me from Canada. He gave me a choice of 4 different models, each which retailed for around 2500 and offered my choice if I would Western Union 1700 to him in Canada.
I sent the money, and "Lord Cyric" disappeared. I have been hunting for "Lord Cyric" since. Recently, I discovered that "Lord Cyric" is in truth a ruling member of a huge identity theft syndicate on the internet located at www.darkmarket.ws.
www.darkmarket.ws is a secret fraud board where millions of stolen identities and stolen credit card numbers are sold and bartered on a daily basis. After investigating this enterprise, I have found that I am by no means the ONLY one this band of crooks has ripped off.
International, federal, and state authorities were notified and I was told at the federal level that "Lord Cyric" could not be involved in scamming me because he is some sort of government associate and is restricted from doing such things. They suggested that someone was using the online moniker "Lord Cyric" falsely and used it to rip me off. "Can't be our guy", they said, "he is monitored too closely".
I beg to differ. I know who I sent money to and I know who ripped me off. When I asked the agent if he felt their guy was above a little side dipping, he simply laughed and said he had another call and told me good luck finding who really ripped me off, and have a nice day.
If the federal government is going to sponsor myself and very likely many others being ripped off by one of there "associates" and then claim he could not be involved due to that association then I think something is wrong with the government when it comes to internet fraud. I don't care WHO he works for - A CROOK IS A CROOK. I do not think it is fair to protect fraudsters and I am appalled that my complaint was dismissed without investigation simply because the crook is on "their team".
