An alleged old-timer in the international carding community and one of 
the top sellers of stolen bank card data has been arrested in France, 
and faces extradition to the United States on an indictment unsealed 
Wednesday in Washington, D.C.

Vladislav Anatolievich Horohorin, 27, aka BadB, holds dual-citizenship 
in Ukraine and Israel and was one of the earliest members of 
CarderPlanet, a first of its kind Russian-language carding forum that 
was launched around 2002 by a group of East Europeans. CarderPlanet was 
shuttered in 2004, and BadB had more recently been selling his stolen 
goods at and on his own websites, and, 
where he promoted his product in lighthearted Flash cartoons like the 
one above.

Authorities say the network created by Horohorin and other CarderPlanet 
veterans is linked to =E2=80=9Cnearly every major intrusion of financial 
information reported to the international law enforcement community.=E2=80=9D

According to the indictment, Horohorin bragged online that he was one of 
the biggest sellers of =E2=80=9Cdumps=E2=80=9D (account and other data stored on a bank 
card=E2=80=99s magnetic stripe) and had been a card seller for about eight 
years. Undercover agents from the U.S. Secret Service negotiated 
purchases of stolen data from him and worked with French authorities to 
arrest him.
