NCIDETF Apparently Assisted in the DarkMarket Investigation?
The Northern California Illicit Digital Economy (NCIDE) Task Force, in their own words, “investigates violations of U.S. law involving cryptocurrencies and dark web marketplaces in the greater Northern California area and beyond.” A recent change to the site indicates that the Task Force played some role in the DarkMarket investigation and seizure.Background on the NCIDETF
An onion service operated by the Task Force displays the usernames of vendors investigated and identified by NCIDETF investigators. In many cases, the vendors listed on the onion service have also been convicted of crimes related to illicit drug distribution. Traditionally, the list has included arrested vendors and identified vendors. The Task Force changed how they listed the subjects of NCIDETF investigations by eliminating the identified vendors section and adding a section for cases worked with federal partners and a section for foreign partners.
The federal partners’ section includes some new names as well as some old names. Interestingly, there are now some vendors missing from the list such as MR_Taffy and HonestHerb. The list of identified vendors is still available in the source for the website; the Task Force commented out the list and replaced it with the section for foreign partners.The DarkMarket Addition
But the significant change seems to be the inclusion of DarkMarket as a case worked with foreign partners. I have no idea what role the Task Force played in the DarkMarket investigation. The NCIDETF originally appeared to primarily target marijuana vendors located in California. The CyberBunker servers undoubtedly provided law enforcement agencies with a ton of information on the marketplace’s administrators. But that is basically the extent of the information available to the public.
I almost feel as if I am on the wrong NCIDETF website.
The DarkMarket trial started last week. Hopefully some technical details about law enforcement’s tactics and methods surface. A role in the takedown of DarkMarket seems significant enough for a press release.
Oh yeah, another update to the site includes new contact information for the Task Force. They are now on Telegram with the username @ncidetf and have the following jabber account: [email protected].
I tend to agree about it being largely a psyop of some sort. Gov has used entirely fake taskforces/operations in press releases in the past and I am still convinced the new “Dark Market and Digital Currency Crimes (DMDCC) Task Force” is non-existent.
Far from Team America but those dudes mean business, if your a DND operating out of California, you have to consider the pros and cons, yes you have to deal with these guys but Cali is a key port point of entry into the states and you may have to physically operate across state lines otherwise, that is if you moved out of Cali broww… I’ll let you all be the judge or un-judge of that.
Looking at the list there are only 2 strictly weed vendors on there so idk why you think they focus only on weed vendors.
> originally appeared to primarily target marijuana vendors located in Cali It might have **originally appeared** that way because they only added marijuana vendors to their list of identified darkweb vendors when they first added the section to the site? If I had to guess.
I find their dread account quite hilarious
i remember foshizzle said he emailed the help-at-fbi.gov address to ask if the website and shit was legit and got a response back saying yes it is
Yeah IIRC someone on Twitter did something similar. Perhaps it was actually foshizzle on Dread and I am retard about the location.

So these are the fucks with their own onion right? man cali is so fucked up. Who decides if your grow is legal or not? your wallet it seems.... Fuck the Population bodies in the basement - $crim
In Conjunction with Foreign Partners kikes always get their gold in the end
^This. NCIDE is just another psychological operation out in the air used to deter pussies in the future. They rarely catch anyone as you can see the list rarely if ever upgrades. They even had to edit some names only later to find out they were wrong I am sure of it.
