U.S. Police Launch their Own Tor Site for Darkweb Vendor Busts


Not unlike the hidden services posted by Dutch law enforcement with lists of identified vendors, law enforcement in the United States recently published their own hidden service with a list of vendors arrested by law enforcement in California. The problem: some people are still buying from the vendors listed on the hidden service.

Although the majority of the vendors listed on the hidden service have been added to this site’s list of arrested vendors, a handful of them slipped through the cracks. According to a source who keeps a close eye on the community, some buyers still have active accounts on darkweb markets and customers are still attempting to purchase from these vendors.

The Northern California Illicit Digital Economy (NCIDE) Task Force’s list includes the following vendors:
