Meaning – A website dedicated to the sharing of the stolen credit-card information.
It may include credit card information that has been illegally obtained, as well as a discussion board in which members of the forum may share technique. Carding forums primarily focus on ways that individuals can verify stolen credit card information. They may suggest that the stolen cards be used to make small transactions that are unlikely to trigger a warning to the rightful cardholder, or to make transactions at a business or venue that does not immediately process the card transaction. Carding forums are used by thieves who want to use stolen card information to make purchases, as well as groups looking to purchase stolen card numbers.
