Identity theft is a real problem these days, with cyber criminals stealing information to sell on the Dark Web, and apparently they are getting good money for even the slightest bit of info.
A new report by the website Privacy Affairs looked at hundreds of pieces of data being sold on the Dark Web to determine just how much a person’s info is worth and the results may be surprising.
- According to the site, a person’s personal information is worth about $1,010.
- That total breaks down as follows:
- Stolen online banking logins, min. $100 on account: $40
- U.S. driving license, high quality: $400
- Hacked Facebook account: $45
- Stolen credit card details: $25
- Europe national ID card, high-quality: $500
- And that number jumps even higher if you add a U.S. passport into the mix, which goes for an additional $4,000, bringing the total to $5,010.
And that isn’t the only info that’s worth a lot of money on the Dark Web. Credit card and bank info can also go for a nice sum, including
- Cloned Mastercard with PIN: $25
- Cloned American Express with PIN: $35
- Cloned VISA with PIN: $25
- Credit card details, account balance up to $1,000: $150
- Credit card details, account balance up to $5,000: $240
- Stolen online banking logins, minimum $100 on account: $40
- Stolen online banking logins, minimum $2,000 on account : $120
