FBI has seized Deep Dot Web and arrested its administrators
The FBI has seized Deep Dot Web, a website that facilitated access to market places on the dark web used for the exchange of illicit goods and services. Authorities in Israel, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Brazil have arrested people suspected of operating the website.
The administrators of the Deep Dot Web offered referral links to numerous shady, underground websites, allowing them to earn millions of dollars. The seized notice on the website mentions US money laundering legislation.
Just last week, prominent dark web marketplace Wall Street Market (WSM) was taken down in a collaborate effort by Europol and law enforcement agencies from the US and various European countries.
