Dark Web or Clear Web?

Dark Web and Clear Web

Fraudsters began recommending Bahira Finance on dark web forums in early 2022.

The name, which is shared by a Christian monk in Islamic theology, was likely selected due to its meaning of “tested” or “approved” in the Syriac language. Fittingly, Bahira offers numerous validity and balance checkers for the card details it sells, which is important to its customers who often bemoan the common experience of purchasing “dead” cards.

Bahira has generated buzz in both Russian and English-speaking dark web spaces and boasts the sale of both card details and dumps (the information encoded onto a card’s magnetic stripe and used to make physical clones). Unlike some autoshops, users can apply for vendor accounts on the site, rather than being part of a closed group or selling card databases behind the scenes.
