“In 2007, Ukrainian Maksym Yastremsky was the most prolific credit card hacker in the world. He’d stolen over 40 million cards from mostly U.S.-based retailers. He’d cost credit card companies over $11 million.” -CNN

In 2008 he was arrested in Turkey after the U.S. Secret Service stumbled on and lured in his network.

The main hacker of the web of credit card hackers, Yastremsky, worked with a variety of hackers to steal the credit card data. He sometimes placed Malware directly on the financial networks at major retailers. (Target, Walmart, Bestbuy, etc..) So as soon as you’d swipe your card, the criminals would have your credit information.

In my opinion, the credit card hackers were one of the most successful criminal organizations ever to be established. for more than a decade they stole, bought, traded, and sold over $40,000,000 worth of credit cards. The team was a well developed team who could only be brought down by the most experienced hackers and “posers” in the United States.
The problem that poses to the United States Government is the impact of the peoples security.
