In this Podcast, we will discuss what the term “Carding” means and how “Carders” operate.

DALLAS - Thousands of credit cards were potentially compromised in a hotel room purchasing scheme worth $250,000, according to federal court documents. According to the criminal complaint, which was unsealed last week, investigators in Dallas began looking into suspicious hotel room purchases allegedly made by K. Klutts and O. Edwards in late August.  The pair would rent one or two rooms in different hotels in Dallas, Fort Worth and other areas and then sub-rent the room to other people at lower fees, the document says. Klutts is accused of buying those rooms with credit card numbers she bought from a “carding network.”
