OK, so please be honest, I'm looking for someone out there that works for the underground digital mafia as an actual professional phisherman of unsuspecting people's personal data to answer some legitimate questions. Respond to this thread with your thoughtful answers and if I select your series of answers I will paypal you $10.
The first question is rhetorical and is a practice question.
1) Do you think I am an idiot?
2) What is the compensation structure you receive for compromising and collecting the personal information of unsuspecting people? Are you paid per record compromised? Per 10 records? Per successful usage of the personal data?
3) How much are you paid per stolen record?
4) Do you work independently or are you working for an organized outfit?
5) Do you make money with malware authoring tools? Give us some detail.
6) What is your success rate? Do 1 and 100 people actually responds to a note similar to the one I was sent? 1 in 1000?
I'm not kidding, I want serious answers from real hackers on these questions, I will check back here and respond to the thread when I've closed my contest and picked the winner.
