(Before It's News)

Delaware, Fl, February 20, 2016 – Drug dealers, hitmen and assassins offer their services on Deep Web, a part of the Internet that is not accessible to normal Web Browsers nor search engines.

Hitmen and assassins from various drug cartels and mafia organizations advertise their services on Deep Web, for prices between $5000 USD and $200 000 . “The cheapest assassins are gang members who claim to cover their head and use a hand gun to shoot the target close range while the most expensive hitmen are ex-military people with combat experience and sniper rifles, they claim to do hits on CEOs, business men, even governmental officials.” says Mark Davenson, a mafia and drug cartels researcher.

To access the Deep Web visitors use a special web Browser named Tor, this hides the IP address and enables the user to browse anonymously various secret websites through a sophisticated network of encrypted websites run by secret webmasters.

“Besa Mafia is one example of a dark marketplace where hitmen look for business and where customers order hit jobs. The marketplace is operated by the Albanian Mafia, a criminal organization with over 30 000 active gang members in USA.” says Mr. Davenson.

To access their site, one would need to download the free Tor Browser and know the dark marketplace address. “Some marketplaces have addresses that can be found with a bit of research on Google, enabling even teenagers to order murder online if they have Bitcoin. ” says Mr. Davenson. 

To avoid being discovered customers never provide their name or address and pay with Bitcoin, a digital currency that is difficult to trace, and allows the user to remain anonymous . 

Bitcoins can be purchased with cash and other payment methods at Bitcoin exchange sites, as any other currency. 

Because Bitcoin transactions are irreversible, and do not contain neither the name and address of sender, nor the name of address of receiver, customers use a middle Escrow Wallet to remain protected.

“They never pay the hitmen directly, instead they send funds to an intermediary Escrow Wallet that features a protection named Multi Sig, to ensure that neither the customers nor the service providers get scammed by the other party.” answer Mr. Davenson when is asked why the customers are not afraid that the hitmen will run with the money before doing the job.

All big dark net marketplaces have escrow accounts in place with the Bitcoin Multi Sig feature to ensure that no one can move the funds out from escrow without the customer approval.

By using Bitcoin and escrow accounts, hiring a hitman online is safer than in the real world, a hitman hired on the street can always run away with the 50% advance in cash paid before the hit by the average customer .

On the other hand, when hiring a hitman online on deep web, Bitcoin are deposited to the Escrow Wallet as a proof for hitmen that funds are available, but the assassin does not get the funds until the job is completed.

“One other reason that make people hire hitmen on Deep Web is that they are not required to provide their name or address, only target information. This way, even if the hitmen get caught, they can not give the customer information to the Police.” says Mr. Davenson.

On the other hand, people who hire a hitman in the real world can not keep their identities anonymous, and often get arrested if the hitman is discovered by Police.

Hiring a hitman on the deep net or in the real world is illegal and can result in a long sentence of jail time if the customer is caught. Better to stay away from Deep Web and the criminals who offer their services there.
