You’re here to learn carding, I know. Of course, this carding tutorial for beginners covers everything you must know before considering yourself a carder. This article is not one of those articles you read very fast and get going. Get a chill liquid, and perhaps, beer before you start scrolling!
Your presence on this webpage is not really to learn how to card, but how to make money carding. Every carder is interested in profit, and carding is one of the many e-hustling investments that involve a credit card. The credit card will not be yours, so it’s more like your victim saying,” Bills on me,” whenever you card successfully.
Carding is gambling. Sometimes you win, and sometimes you lose. However, when you understand what you want and know what you’re doing, then you’ll definitely cashout. Cashout is when you withdraw money or collect items after carding. Most of the websites that hustlers card call it ‘Checkout’ or ‘Confirm Order’.
There are thousands of carding methods out there. ‘Carding Method’ does not only mean how you card, but the type of carding or the website you want to card and cashout.
I believe I’ve prepared your mind enough for this carding lesson. Whether as a beginner or pro, you need this tutorial to solve problems because you’ll encounter many carding problems, starting from the type of credit card details (CC), carding website policy, and many more.
History of Carding: the True Origin of Carders
Carding is a term for credit card scams, which is very popular today across the world. Like every investment, carding has a history. Let’s find out.
Carding dates back to the 1980s when we had dial-up BBSes (Bulletin Board Systems). At the time, carders were known as hackers, and many of the hackers convicted in the 1980s were carders. Carders used methods such as raiding mailboxes, trashing and insider rapport to collect card details. What we still know today as ‘drops’ were the places where these card details were sold. Drops included places like abandoned homes, scrapyards, and uncompleted buildings.
Getting to 1990, the US launched Operation Sundevil (a secret service) to take out carders. Around 1995, AOL dial-up accounts became popular. It was labeled “AOHell” because carders used it to collect credit card details from people using the internet.
In 1999, the US lost between $500,000 and $2 million to carding. One of the events leading to this loss was when a Russian teenager (19 years), Maxim, collected credit card details from 25,000 people from CD Universe. He asked for $100,000, which was not paid, so he released all credit card details online for carders.
Russia has been one of the founding fathers of carding globally. In 2001, Russians developed CarderPlanet for thousands of carders. In 2003, under Operation Firewall, the US arrested the top administrator Albert Gonzalez of the large ShadowCrew, and in 2004, the administrator of CarderPlanet ran away, and Gonzalez became the be admin.
In 2005, CardSystems was hacked, and many card details were stolen. CardSystems was a big credit card processing company. Still, in 2005, carders in the UK collaborated with the Russian mafia but were arrested through a National Hi-Tech Crime Unit investigation.
In 2007, Carder.su was targeted by Operation Open Market, an organization managed by the HIS and the USSS. Roman Seleznev, the alleged owner of the website, was apprehended.
In 2012, David Ray Camez, an identity thief, was arrested. Also, in 2012, the US shut down Kurupt.su, and David Schrooten was arrested for trafficking credit cards. Other carding websites seized in 2012 include UGNazi.com and Carders.org.
In 2013, a carding forum HackBB was shut down, and in 2014, fakeplastic.net was also shut down.
Today, carding has continued to grow. Make sure to avoid these fake websites to avoid getting scammed as a hustler.
Can You Make Money from Carding?
Yes, you can make money as a carder. Simply decide on the website you can use to card by searching it on this website. Meanwhile, in 2012, 5,000 carders in 20 countries withdrew $5 million, $400,000 in 700 transactions in ATMs in 140 New York within 150 minutes. In 2014, Group-IB’s report suggested that Russian cybercriminals could be making as much as $680 million yearly.
What is Carding?
Carding is when a carder uses CC (credit card details) to order and cashout on any cardable website. Instead of writing “credit card details”, I’ll be using CC throughout this tutorial since it is the technical term.
What is CC?
CC refers to the credit card details. The information you find on a credit card is what is called CC, and it is what a carder uses to card any website that is cardable. These details include the following:
- Credit card number
- Expiry date
- Credit card name
CVV is usually written at the back of a credit card and is just 3 digits. Something like 433.
What is Carding Method?
I mentioned carding method earlier. Carding method is the cardable website that you select to use CC for cashing out. It involves applying the procedures on a cardable website (a website that supports carding) to cashout with CC. In most cases, carding method is always updated. That is why when we teach you specific carding methods, we include the year in front. For example, you will have something like “Flipkart carding method 2030”. This means that the method has been updated for 2030 to card on Flipkart successfully. You can’t use the method of 2029 in 2030.
Some carding methods allow you to card money, while some allow you to card gift cards. You can also card items. For example, to card items like phones, you use carding methods like Amazon carding, Flipkart carding, Apple store carding, etc. You can even card an accommodation on Airbnb using their permanent gift card. Don’t bother about these methods, though. There are many of them online. Just search online and you’ll see how they’re done. I recommend a website like Smartlazyhustler if you do not find a preferred carding method on this site.
What to Know About a Carder
There’s no need for me to define a carder. We already know that a carder is someone that cards with CC. But there’s more to just carding with CC. A carder must be intelligent, creative, and innovative. As a carder, when you’re given tutorials on any carding method, for example, don’t expect the carding teacher to mention the basics. Here is where you learn the basics. But you can always ask questions. As a beginner carder, you can make $100. When you target high profile CC holders, you can expect at least $1,000 selling CC without carding with it.
Most of the time, a carder works with a picker. Now, you’re wondering who a picker is? When carding, you do not receive the carded funds, items or gift cards directly to avoid getting caught. It’s the responsibility of the picker. However, if you’re carding funds, you need someone known as the ‘money mule’.
Who is a Picker?
A picker is someone that collects carded items, including phones, computers, and other electronic gadgets. It can be anything, so far, you carded it for shipping. A picker normally charges 10-15 percent of the value of the item you carded. For example, if you carded an iPhone worth $1,000, a picker charges $100 on the scale of 10 percent.
A picker normally collects the carded item(s) from a place known as ‘drop’. Note that a picker can be a legal company known as a “reshipping company”. You use a reshipping company if you reside outside the country you card. For example, if you live in South Africa but card a US website, you need a re-shipper in the US or a street picker to collect the item and forward it to your country.
What is a Drop?
The place where a carded item is first moved to before shipping by the carded website is known as ‘drop’. In the past, a drop location could be an abandoned house, junk yard, etc. Currently, the shipping location you select when carding an item on a cardable website (the website you can card) is drop. It is advisable for a picker or a reshipping company to collect the item so that you don’t get caught. Just search for the available reshippers in the country you’re carding. You can use our comment section for assistance.
Who is a Money Mule?
I mentioned ‘money mule’ earlier. A money mule is a person that receives carded money and then sends it to you to avoid chargeback or your bank account or mobile wallet being flagged. He uses what is known as ‘bank drop’ to make the dirty money legal. A bank drop is used mostly in another e-hustling known as ‘bank logs cashout’. You can search for this tutorial on this website. It is a bit different from carding, and it does not always require CC.
Requirements for Carding Methods
In the section, I list and explain the various requirements for carding. Note that some carding methods may require additional tools. These are just the basic tools you must have in handy. Below are the carding requirements a carder must have:
The first question you ask when you come across a website that sells gift cards, items, and allows the movement of funds illegally (methods like PayPal carding, Venmo carding, Cash App carding, etc., are carding methods for moving funds) is, “Is this website cardable?” You can tell whether a website is cardable through their policy and T&Cs pages.
OpSec means Operational Security, and it is the general name basic security steps you use to hide your identity online when carding. A good OpSec must include a VPN, Socks, RDP, etc. You just need any renowned tool that can change your IP address to the IP of the country where you want to card from your country. We also classify CCleaner under the OpSec category because it allows you to clear cookies.
Changing your IP address also allows you to access certain carding websites that block m restrict IP addresses outside their country of operation—for example, Cash App.
A free VPN is always recommended, but as a carding beginner, you can use it until you make your first $100 cashout to buy premium versions.
Fake Email Address and Phone Number
You need a fake email address and phone number. Nonetheless, some carding methods require 2-3 fake email addresses, for example, PayPal. Basically, all mobile payment carding require at least 2 email addresses.
Another important tool is a phone number known as a burner phone number. Suppose you’re a carding the US website from the UK. You need the US phone number to complete US verifications. For instance, when you’re carding the US version of Cash App, your phone number must be a USA phone number.
Using a fake email address and phone number helps you to remain anonymous. The carding website is also unable to access your information on the phone number, so your identity is protected.
Drop and Picker
I have explained the responsibility of a picker and drop already. You must always have them because carding must be done quickly to prevent the original card owner from knowing, perhaps a chargeback.
As mentioned already, a drop is a place that you select in the carding account before checkout. A picker is a person that will collect the item end mail it to your location or ship it to your country. Nowadays, we have reshipping companies.
Some carding methods require your SSN for verification. Examples of cardable sites that require SSN include Shopwithscrip and PayPal.
Whether you reside in the US or not, you must not use an SSN that uses your name. You can use a fake SSN, depending on the security level of the website, or buy SSN. You can also collect SSN from a client. Note that using another person’s SSN will get them into trouble after your card and cashout successfully.
I explained what a bank drop is already. The difference between a drop and a bank drop is that a bank drop is the bank account that receives your carded funds and is operated by a money mule. A drop, on the other hand, is a physical location operated by a picker. Typically, when you card any mobile payment website like PayPal, you may need a bank drop to collect the payment and cashout before a chargeback occurs.
A carding account is a fake account you create on a cardable website. You need a fake email address and burner or temporary phone number when creating an account on the website you want to card. You’ll also use a VPN to create the website to match the IP of the country where your carding website operates from.
The main tool of any carding method is the CC. Without CC, nothing works, and the problem that most beginner carders have is buying CC from reliable vendors online. Some usually get scammed.
Since CC is the most important tool for carding, let me explain everything you must know about it before you buy it.
We also have what is known as CC BINs, the first 4-6 digits of CC number that tell you the institution that issues or manages the CC.
Note that if your CC is the UK CC, it can only card the UK website. That is to say that you can’t card a USA website with UK CC.
Types of CC
There are many kinds of CC, including the following:
Visa is one of the most widely used CC for carding. We have verified and non-verified Visa CC. The verified Visa is known as VBV (Verified by Visa) and the non-verified Visa is known as non-VBV (non-verified by Visa). Non-VBV is the recommended CC because it does not require OTP (One-Time Password). When you want to buy Visa CC, go for non-VBV, but it can be expensive. Moreover, it is not widely used again since many Visa cards now require verification. Visa carding BIN is the identification number of the CC. It comes in different digits, depending on the bank. Example of Visa BINs:
These digits also represent the CC details and its institutions.
The best CC for carding is the “live high balance non-VBV CC” because it contains funds, and does not require verification.
MasterCard is another common CC for carding. It requires OTP.
Note that there’s nothing like “best BIN for carding”. The truth is that any BIN that has balance is the best.
Levels of CC
There are 3 levels of CC, including the following:
- CC Fullz
- Partial CC Fullz
CC fullz is the CC with complete details. When you buy CC fullz, you get the following details:
- Original cardholder’s name
- Card Number
- Card expiry date
- ZIP Code
- Telephone Billing Number
- Bank Name
- Account Number
- Routing Number
- Drivers License Number
- CC PIN
Partial CC Fullz
This CC does not contain every CC detail.
- Original cardholder’s name
- Card Number
- Card expiry date
- Bank Name
- Account Number
- Routing Number
- Drivers License Number
- CC PIN
Ordinary CC contains only the information you would find on the back and front of a credit card.
- Original cardholder’s name
- Card Number
- Card expiry date
Statuses of CC
There are 3 statuses of CC, including the following:
A live CC is a CC that is still active. This means that the original credit card has not expired. To know if CC is live, sign up on any online service that supports a free trial. If it signs up successfully, the CC is live. You must use an online service that allows a free trial so that you can cancel the trial and keep your funds. The website will charge the CC to know whether it is live or dead. The next thing you have to do is bomb the email address registered to the CC. If you buy CC fullz, you will get the email address. Bomb the email address with many emails so that the cardholder can’t tell when you sign up on the online service to check if CC is live. Don’t use any website to check. Otherwise, they steal the CC.
High or Low Balance CC
It is not very easy to tell a CC balance unless you have a deeper knowledge of hacking. That is why most carders use their CC to card immediately since there’s no reliable way to know the balance. Do not use any online service that claims to report the CC balance. They will steal the CC information.
Alternatively, you can try buying a cheap item online, perhaps a PDF or any software that can be delivered to your email address. If the purchase is successful, then the CC has a positive balance.
A dead CC is a CC that is not active or does not work. If you try signing on to an online service with a free trial that requires a credit card without success, then the CC is dead.
How to Buy CC Online
Many professionals and beginner carders have a problem with buying CC online. It’s quite easy! Below are the steps to buy a CC:
Sign Up on a Forum
First, look for a reputable carding forum. Take about 3 days to study the activities on the forum. If people are complaining about scammers on the platform, it is not a reliable platform. Some closed groups on Facebook also sell CC. You can find them and become a member.
Message the Admin
Get in touch with the admin of the website or group. Explain to them that you want to buy CC and that you want them to be your escrow. An escrow is a trusted third party that overlooks a transaction between two people to make sure nobody is scammed in the transaction. The CC vendor and you are responsible for the service charge of the escrow admin. The admin can charge between 10 and 15 percent. Some admins do not allow negotiations.
Now, you can post a thread asking for a CC seller. Inform the seller about the escrow, and explain that the escrow is the group or forum admin. If the seller refuses to use an admin, it’s a sign that they’ll scam you.
When you find a sincere seller, inform the escrow. The escrow will create a group and add both of you.
You will send money to the escrow, and the seller will send you the CC. You must check or use the CC immediately because the seller may have sent you a fake CC. The escrow will wait until you report back about the CC.
If you report that the CC is successful, the admin escrow releases payment to the seller. If you claim it is not working, the admin will investigate the problem before deciding whether you’re lying or being sincere. If the admin finds that you’re lying, he moves payment to the seller. If he finds that you’re honest, he will return the money to you but still keeps the commission for the services they offered.
Alternatively, you can collect CC details from a client online. You can use any method, including phishing, keylogging their computer (if you have physical contact with the person), etc.
How to Start Carding as a Beginner
Isn’t this the best carding guide for beginners? I know you’re loving it and can’t wait to start carding and cashout. We are at the peak of this beginner carding tutorial, and in this section, you’ll learn the basics of carding any website. I have shown you how to buy CC above, so let’s assume you already have CC.
Below are the steps regarding how to start carding as a beginner:
- Enable OpSec
- Create Fake Email Addresses and Phone Numbers
- Buy or Create an Account on the Carding Website
- Add or Confirm CC in Payment Option
- Card Your Items or Move Funds
- Reship Items or Forward Funds
- Collect Item or Cashout
Apart from CC, your identity security or operational security is the most important tool in carding. Many carders do not even realize that they’re being tracked 24/7. You went through the carding history in this article, right? You’ve seen how security agencies were arresting carders. This means that whatever you do online is being monitored, but you can always hide your identity using IP address changers.
There are many IP address changing tools out there. I won’t recommend anyone because I’m not affiliated with any of them. But if you want me to suggest some of the best, use the comment form.
I can’t also recommend a free VPN, especially the versions you download outside your app providers like Google Play or the Apple app store. Some of these free VPNs intercept your connections and steal passwords or install malware on your system or device.
Another operations tool you need in place is browser cookie cleaner. CCleaner is very popular among carders, but there are many out there, especially when you’re carding with a mobile phone. Whenever you close your browser, use the cookie cleaner to erase your browsing cache.
The main idea is to keep your VPN active. Also, your selected IP address must match the city of the CC you’re carding. For example, suppose you bought an American bank CC to card an American website like Venmo.
Ensure that your VPN or any IP address changer you use must match the IP address of the CC and the country’s website. Using a different location’s IP will not work when carding.
Create Fake Email Addresses and Phone Number
If you don’t already have fake email addresses and phone numbers, then make sure to create them. You don’t need a VPN to create an email address, but make sure to select the country you’re carding with when opening your email address. Email address providers such as Gmail hide your IP address, but it does not mean you must ignore your VPN. You don’t also need a phone number to open an email address, except you don’t know the trick. You can read my guide on how you can create multiple Gmail accounts with one or no phone numbers.
How about your phone number for carding? First, your phone number must match the country you are carding. Suppose you’re carding Cash App, then you need either the UK or US phone number because Cash App supports only these two countries. I have written a guide for creating a fake phone number. You can also use a burner phone number online. But having a personal foreign phone number is preferable.
All carding formats require phone numbers and email addresses. Another thing to note is that your fake email address should be similar to the email address on the CC. If you don’t buy CC fullz, you may not receive the email address of the CC from the seller.
Buy or Create an Account on the Carding Website
After setting up for VPN and creating a fake email address and phone number, create or buy a fake account of the carding website. Some carding formats like Shopwithscrip require an old account while others can still work with new accounts. The reason some carding formats require old accounts is that you may not be able to verify SSN or any ID required to activate the account. Old accounts have the verifications already. You may also be fortunate that the old account has CC registered as a payment option by the original owner, meaning that you simply card the website using the available CC.
Add or Confirm CC in Payment Option
- An old account. Like I’ve mentioned before, if you buy an old carding account, it may have CC and is more expensive. After buying an old account, you want to confirm whether there’s CC under the payment option.
- A new account. If you create a new carding account, you need to register CC in it. Buy CC or CC fullz and add it as your payment option. The owner will not be notified, except when you begin transactions. Nonetheless, suppose you’re carding a mobile service like PayPal. It will charge the CC bank account to confirm that the card is active or has funds.
After adding a payment option or finding an already added payment option (CC information), you’re 50% closer to carding the website successfully.
Card Your Items or Move Funds
You recall I mentioned that some carding methods require adding items to the cart and completing orders while some require moving funds from one account to another (carded bank account to a bank drop). Some carding methods, such as Airbnb, even require carding only gift cards.
- Carding an item. If your carding method requires adding an item or items to the cart, then you are carding the item(s). First, add the item you want to the cart. Suppose you’re carding Amazon. After adding your items on Amazon to your cart, you’ll have the option to checkout and complete the order. The original holder of the CC will be notified via email address, but you can bomb their email address to prevent them from seeing your activities. If your CC is non-VBV, OTP is not required. If it is VBV, then OTP is required. You should read my guide on how to buy online without OTP. After placing your order, you’re 80% done.
- Moving funds to another account. If your carding method requires transferring money from CC to a bank account, then there are many ways to accomplish it. First, suppose you’re carding a PayPal account or CC using PayPal, you can either (1) send the money to another fake PayPal account you created, (2) send the funds to a betting site that allows to place a bet from that carding website, (3) transfer funds to BTC wallet, or (4) send the funds to a ‘bank drop’ directly.
If you’re moving the funds to a betting site, it means you’re gambling with it to convert it to clean cash. You must also place a bet on low odds to increase the chance of winning back your carded funds.
Reship Items or Forward Funds
The final step is to reship (if you’re using a carding method that requires carding items) or forward the convert the funds to clean cash and forward to your bank account.
- Reshipping items. Recall that you checked out the item to complete your carded order. Now, you have to reship the item. I mentioned using a person known as ‘a picker’ or a legal organization known as a ‘reshipper’. Whether you live in the country you’re carding or not, it’s always better to use a picker or reshipping company. Suppose you live in the UK. Ensure to use a picker. A picker will charge about 10% of the value of your item. If you live outside the UK but carding a UK website, you need a reshipping company to forward the item to your country. If you need a redoing reshipping company, use the comment form and I’ll get back to you with a reshipping company available in your carding country.
- Forwarding funds. If you’re forwarding funds because your carding method requires forwarding funds and not the shipping of items, then you need someone known as a money mule. I explained what you should know about a money mule. The money mule uses their bank drop to collect your funds. It can be their BTC, special bank account, betting site, etc. The responsibility of a money mule is to convert your illegal funds into legal funds to skid avoid a chargeback by the bank operating the CC.
Above is all you should know about filling shipping items or moving funds. Before you complete your order (if you’re ordering an item due to your carding method), you’re allowed to select a city or location within the CC country, which is known as your drop. The picker is to collect the item from the location and give it to you. The same applies to a reshipping company. They will pick the item and ship it to your country.
Collect Item or Cashout
If you’re carding an item on e-commerce like Amazon or Nike, you have to collect your carded item. If you’re carding funds on mobile wallets like Venmo, PayPal, Cash App, then you’ll collect the funds from your bank and cashout.
- Receiving items. When the shipping company (reshipper) or picker arrives, you’ll have to identify yourself and collect your item.
- Receiving funds. After the money mule receives the carded funds to their bank account, they will move it into your bank account for cashout. Ensure to have a dedicated bank account. If possible, you can open a bank account with fake information.
Now, your carding is successful! End of the story.
Why can’t I card successfully?
You can’t card succe5 because your CC is either dead, has a negative balance, or you use a VBV CC, which requires OTP.
What website can I card?
You can card any website that allows credit card transactions. It can be an e-commerce website or a mobile money app. You can also card a website that will enable you to book accommodation or a real estate website that allows you to buy or rent houses.
Can you get caught carding?
Yes, you can get caught carding. However, you can protect your identity online from security agencies using VPNs, cookies cleaners, or any IP changer.
Where can I get the best CC?
There is no website that sells the best CC. Any CC that has a positive balance and does not require OTP is the best CC. You also need a CC that matches the country you’re carding.
With these, we’ve reached the end of this carding tutorial for beginners. You can always return here to refresh your knowledge.
Carding is fun until you get caught. It is illegal in any country and considered cybercrime. When carding, understand the implications and be mindful of your internet security. You could be tracked without knowing.
Meanwhile, when you move funds or order items with CC, ensure to bomb your victim’s email address to prevent them from seeing the email notifications of your carding activity. Uhm… Lest I forget, carding is an art too. You must make it part of you to cashout.
