Wallstreet Vendor “RaptureReloaded” Sentenced to Prison

Joanna De Alba, a 40-year-old explicitly described the U.S. Attorney’s Office as a “U.S. citizen,” will be spending 96 months in prison after pleading guilty to a variety of drug charges. The defendant admitted selling heroin, MDMA, cocaine, methamphetamine, and oxycodone on Wallstreet Market. De Alba, who operated an account under the username “RaptureReloaded,” completed 600 transactions between 2018 ad 2019.

Darknetlive covered the case after law enforcement arrested De Alba at the U.S.-Mexico border in 2019. That article is here: Wallstreet Vendor “RaptureReloaded” Indicted in New York.

The Drug Enforcement Administration launched an investigation into De Alba in 2018.

Investigators purchased of heroin and methamphetamine from RaptureReloaded in late 2018 and early 2019. Investigators, after receiving their orders, linked the shipping labels to a third-party postage service. This is a mistake made by many of the arrested darkweb vendors on this site. Although there are a number of postage services that accept cryptocurrency, De Alba used credit cards to pay for shipping labels. Court documents revealed that she used cards under her name as well as cards under her late husband’s name to pay for postage. De Alba had at least five accounts with the postage service, all of which used credit cards.

De Alba had negative opsec.

Two of the accounts used to purchase the shipping labels had been registered under her late husband’s name and the email addresses raptureroom@protonmail.com and rapturereloaded@protonmail.com. The defendant had used her phone number and email address to register the other accounts. Using the information provided by the postage service, investigators found De Alba’s Facebook account where they learned that her husband had died in March 2018.

The investigators also seized five heroin and methamphetamine packages shipped from the Netherlands and Canada to her late husband’s home in California. The packages were seized between August 2018 and January 2019, prosecutors highlighted. This, to them, proved that De Alba had gone to great lengths to “operate anonymously and conceal her identity.”

The defendant was arrested on October 24, 2019, at the US-Mexico border as she attempted to cross into the US. She was charged with one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute heroin and methamphetamine, and distribution of heroin and methamphetamine.

De Alba had distributed more than 840 grams of heroin, 190 grams of methamphetamine, 1,250 MDMA pills, and 750 fentanyl-laced oxycodone pills in over 600 orders. She pocketed approximately 16.32 Bitcoin and 400 Monero during the drug trafficking operation.

De Alba pleaded guilty in April 2021 and was sentenced to eight years in prison on November 3 by United States District Judge Dora L. Irizarry.

Speaking after announcing De Alba’s sentence United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Breon Peace said:

“The prison sentence imposed on De Alba today demonstrates that her clandestine use of the dark web to distribute a potentially lethal array of powerful drugs like fentanyl, heroin, and oxycodone in exchange for cryptocurrency was a failure. This investigation and vigorous prosecution show that we will not allow the dark web to be a haven for drug traffickers.”

Paying with her real credit card, having email address same as vendor name, using her real phone number to register email account AND GLOWNIGGERS HAVE THE NERVE TO SAY SHE "had gone to great lengths to operate anonymously and conceal her identity.” It's amazing such people still manage to earn lots of money and are not caught instantly. I cringed at the Breon Peace, those glowies are a joke.

This was not a very bright woman running this operation. I don't like the way it is reported that this woman did all she could to stay safe, besides using Tor this woman did everything you are not meant to do while vending on DNM'S she is where she belongs and really there needs to be a stupidity test before you start vending and if you fail it then you should just be locked up instantly no bother waiting the 1 or 2 years for law enforcement to catch up then pat themselves on the back and give a great warning saying this will be you if you start vending.

Word, the stupidity test should be real. It's actually pretty scary dumb people can access such powerful technology, they don't realize they can hurt themselves.
