People are selling stolen Uber accounts on the dark web

42 sec read

Motherboard noticed some interesting activity on popular dark web marketplace AlphaBay recently. Apparently, at least two vendors are selling what appears to be active Uber accounts. Once you’ve purchased one of these stolen accounts, you can access all of the account’s payment information, travel history, email addresses, phone numbers, and even people’s addresses. 

Active Uber accounts are for sale on a dark web marketplace for as little as $1 each, Motherboard has learned. One seller claims he has “thousands” of user logins for sale. A username and password is all you need to access a user’s trip history, which may include personal details such as a home address. While full credit card information is not exposed, the last four digits and expiration date of the user’s card are viewable in a user’s account. Over on AlphaBay market, a recently launched dark web site, vendor Courvoisier has a listing for ‘x1 UBER ACCOUNT – WORLDWIDE TAXI!’ For the meager sum of $1, anyone can anonymously purchase an Uber username and password. Another vendor, ThinkingForward, has a similar offer, but for $5. “I will guarantee that they are valid and live ONLY. Discounts on bulk purchases,” ThinkingForward writes on his product listing.
