SilkRoad JailThe fate of Peter Phillip Nash is still in the hands of the Australian government as a decision is yet to be reached on whether to extradite the 41 year old to the United States. Nash, who hails from Queensland State, was convicted together with two other men in a drug dealing saga. As an alleged moderator of Silk Road, a website through which people buy illicit drugs such as cocaine and heroin, Nash faces conspiracy charges.

The charge sheet detailed the conviction as a conspiracy to engage in computer hacking, narcotics trafficking and money laundering with regards to the website activities in the month of December. The buyers and sellers on the Silk Road platform used bitcoin, a digital currency. The Australian Attorney, General George Brandis through his spokeswoman confirmed that indeed Nash formally relinquished extradition rights when he appeared before a Queensland court. The spokeswoman further added that it was now incumbent upon the Australian Justice Minister to determine whether Mr. Nash is to be surrendered to the United States of America in line with the Extradition Act Section 15B.
However, Justice Michael Keenan, the spokesperson for the Australian Minister for Justice was not immediately available for comment.

The Co-accused, the two men accused together with Mr. Nash, were arrested in Ireland and the United States. According to the indictment read in December, the role played by the two, aged 24 and 25 was that of website administration.

Peter Phillip NashThese convictions come hot on the heels of the arrest in October of Ross Ulbricht, the alleged founder and mastermind behind Silk Road. The indictment identified the three men as accomplices and support personnel for Silk Road, drawing salaries to the tune of between $50,000 and $75,000 per annum.

According to findings and reports, Nash, also known as “Anonymousasshit” and “Batman73”, has been a moderator for Silk Road from January 2013.

The Silk Road Legal Proceedings : Ross Ulbricht Charged as Kingpin

Before you read I would just like to point out that Silk Road 2.0 is still up. This article relates to the original Silk Road

>> Click here to find the Silk Road 2.0 URL and how to get there<<

Silk Road online marketThe Silk Road online market founded in February of 2011 was named after the trade routes between India, China, Europe, and other Afro-Eurasian landmasses that came to wide use during the Han Dynasty from 206 BC to 220 AD. Today, however, the Silk Road site and its alleged creator and administrators are being actively pursued by United States law enforcers.

Trouble for the site began when Gawker published a story about it in June of 2011. This brought the website a lot of attention, prompting US Senator Charles Schumer to ask federal law enforcers to shut down the site. It was believed that the Silk Road had served as an online underground market for illegal drugs, among other things. This was followed by the separate convictions of two Australian Silk Road users in 2013 after they were found to have imported illegal drugs bought on the site.

Money and Drugs

On October 2, 2013, Ross William Ulbricht, whom authorities believed was the founder of the underground online market that earned USD $80 million in commissions, was arrested in San Francisco on suspicion of drug trafficking, money laundering, facilitating computer hacking, and six counts of attempted murder. However, prosecutors believe that the six murders meant to protect the site’s users did not take place despite the amount of $730,000 having been paid for the deeds.

Two days after his arrest in Glen Park Library, Ulbricht appeared during his arraignment in a San Francisco federal court and pleaded “not guilty” to all charges. The hearing was then rescheduled to begin on October 9, with Ulbricht being held without bail.

On October 9, Ulbricht, through his lawyer, admitted his identity as “Ross William Ulbricht”, but denied the aliases “Dread Pirate” Roberts”, “DPR”, and “Silk Road”. This prompted the San Francisco federal court to move the case to New York under custody of US marshals.

Last February 7, 2014, a court in the Southern District of New York scheduled a trial to begin in November after Ulbricht again pleaded “not guilty” to the charges against him. It was also decided that he would be held without bail in a detention center in Brooklyn.

Last February 27, the government provided Ulbricht’s defense team with data seized from Ulbricht’s computers. Reports revealed that the data included between eight and ten terabytes of information gathered for use in prosecuting the alleged Silk Road founder.

Silk Road 2.0 And The Tesco Voucher Scam

>> Click here to find the Silk Road URL and know how to get to the Silk Road 2.0 <<

When people hear of Silk Road, their mind will probably jump to things like guns, drugs and pornography. However, the resurrected Silk Road has brought a whole new meaning to what popular items are. Not long time ago, on the Silk Road 2.0, the most popular items had been Tesco ClubCard vouchers.

Silk Road 2.0

The Silk Road 2.0 Tesco Voucher scam has created quite a buzz all over the world. The offer, which has already been removed, offered potential buyers’ £100 worth of Clubcard vouchers for less than half the price, of £43. The dark net, which can be accessed only by professionals using specialist equipment, was a major distribution hub for Tesco Clubcard vouchers. According to many unanimous buyers, a large number of people have bought the vouchers which were actually pretty genuine. Many customers have managed to use them to purchase Tesco products at 50% off during the last several months.

The vouchers were on sale for several months until Tesco has referred this matter to the police. Tim Keanini, chief engineer at an IT security firm, has recently declared that these hacks are becoming increasingly common nowadays, with more and more retailers and businesses falling victims to cyber criminals and hackers. According to Keanini, the real problem is not that these hackers can access the network. The real threat is that cyber criminals can steal files and still go undetected. This is how they managed to infiltrate the Tesco network and issue those fake vouchers. With over 16 million Clubcard members, Tesco has lost millions of pounds since the beginning of the “crisis”. Tesco officials have yet to release an official statement with the whole amount lost.

The amount of money going through Silk Road 2.0 and other similar websites is unbelievable. More than probably, vouchers from other UK and US retailers might be at risk. Our advice is to keep your eyes open for such scams and declare anything that looks like scam.

Silk Road 2.0 to Reimburse Stolen Bitcoins

>>Click here to find the Silk Road URL and know how to get to the Silk Road 2.0<<

It was a matter of days ago that it was widely reported that the illegal Silk Road 2.0 had been hacked, which resulted in the theft of at least 4,400 BTC. The owner of new Silk Road recently posted on the site’s Tor forums that a total of 3 different hackers had managed to exploit a transaction bug to acquire the BTC from the site. “Defcon”, the website’s creator, estimated that 47% of every SR user had lost their account funds.

Bitcoin

Details on the current and past situation have been vague, largely due to the fact that information on the Deepweb can be lacking in reputability. The nature and secrecy of the way such illegal sites operate means that publicly available statistics are almost non-existent.

The timing of the Silk Road 2.0 theft was just around the same time that Mt. Gox (the world’s biggest bitcoin exchange) was also hacked and $400 million worth of bitcoins was stolen. This seems to back up the admins statements that the bitcoins were stolen and it was not an inside job.

This event is the second time that Silk Road users have lost their funds, the last being when they were seized in the FBI take down of SR 1.0. But this time, the owner has claimed that 2.0 users will be reimbursed with their funds that were taken during the hack. The administration team will apparently receive no commissions until everyone’s been refunded, and they’ll maintain high levels of transparency about their progress.

The marketplace will continue, this time as no-escrow. A 5% commission will be charged on all items which will be instantly transferred to victims’ balances after payment.

Whilst there’s users that are overjoyed at the news of their possible refund, there’s also no lack of skepticism within the community. Some people feel that they are being forced in to using the new SR 2.0 to get their money back. The allegations made that the theft of 4000+ Bitcoins might have been committed by the site administration itself has resulted in some doubt for victims and users of the site alike. “Defcon” has made a statement to say that the investigation is ongoing and that every sign shows that the hack wasn’t performed by site staff.
