Operation “No Web” resulted in one arrest and two other indicted for child pornography and aggravated fraud on the darkweb in Turin — all suspects were public officials at the Venaria’s municipal office

Three public employees from the Italian municipal office of Venaria Reale, Via Goito street in Turin, are indicted for child pornography and aggravated fraud. Police officers found a total of 38 thousand files of which two thousand depicting minors in profoundly disturbing sexual or even violent situations. The files are thought to have been downloaded in the last six months.

More shockingly is the fact that previously, a female employee had reported suffering an anonymous sexual attack. She had left her water bottle on her desk overnight, and the next morning she found it of a strange color and consistency. Lab results showed the bottle had been contaminated with semen.

“We have evidence that under some circumstances, the suspects for child pornography offenses have masturbated in the office, police commander Luca Vivalda declared.

The first arrested municipal worker has been fired from office. He’s a 61-year-old man from the accountancy and economics office, accused of peculation, fraud, and child pornography. The second suspect is his wife, a personnel office employee who is charged with fraud. The third suspect is another employee from the planning office also charged with trafficking child pornography.

Investigators found that between September the 26th of 2018 and February the 5th of 2019, almost 38 thousand pornographic files were downloaded from the computers of the arrested employee and that of the reported colleague, including photos and videos. Of these, 2127 with minors. Almost eight thousand files in the period from December the 31st of 2018 to February the 5th of 2019, with nearly 500 videos or photos with children.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the pedopornography was saved and re-sold on the darknet. A theory also confirmed by the disproportionate figures found on the seized bank accounts. One of the two subjects had also created a database with all the visited porn sites and those that would still have to access.

“I’m not ashamed to say that, seeing some pictures showing children tortured and raped, I vomited,” said police commander Luca Vivalda.

The inquiry started when computer technicians observed a slow and overloaded network between 9 in the morning to 18 in the evening. Moreso, the municipality had recently installed a vast bandwidth network for reducing operational timing.

“But something was not going well, since the exchange of information was very slow, which is why I asked the technicians of the company that installed the software on our tablets, and it is thanks to this intervention that we have discovered the anomalies, with the often slow and overloaded network, thus giving life to the investigation, the arrest, and the two complaints”, explains Luca Vivalda.

The pair was downloading 60-70 megabytes out of the 100 megabytes available to the City, every day. Investigations have shown that the arrested culprit had a second “job” as an online gambler and trader on the stock exchange.

Also under questioning is the wife of the 61-year-old man who is accused of falsely attributing worked hours to the suspects:

“I want to be good and say that one worked a week in six months and the other one did not. They justified only the minimum working hours required by the union, says Luca Vivalda. Mayor Falcone promised he’ll check the rest of his municipality for similar cases.

On the other hand, the defense attorney of the 61-year-old culprit and wife, deny almost all accusations:

“At the current state of the investigation, the number of downloaded videos has not yet been quantified with precision and the material that, according to the Public Prosecutor’s Office, has been identified as pedopornography. Then, it is absolutely not true that my clients would have sold or divulged the material downloaded to the black market or with any other means. This profile was not even challenged by the prosecutor. Moreover, the current bank accounts of my clients are absolutely not seized. As far as his wife is concerned, the investigations have not brought out relevant responsibilities because she had no power to assign overtime and/or vacation days because of her role as a mere employee of the personnel office,” lawyer Francesco Dal Piaz declared.

According to the Italian Penal Code regarding child pornography, the group faces between six to twelve years and fines from € 24,000 to € 240,000.

A German man was sentenced to one year of probation for using darkweb counterfeit euros in a bar — he also paid a fine of €500

A 27-year-old man was convicted on Monday, 18th of February 2019, for using counterfeit money at a snack bar in Michelau. He was sentenced to one year of probation by the district court of Lichtenfels after being accused of paying with counterfeit in two instances.

Originally from Dörfles-Esbach, the culprit tried to exchange his fake €50 banknotes at a snack bar. After successfully deceiving the cashier the first time, in September of 2017, he got caught the second time he tried to fool the same establishment a month after, in October 2017. The business owner was swiftly advised by his bank that his deposits contained fake money. Both the police and bar staff was informed and remained vigilant. Surely enough, the fraudster attempted the scam again. However, while he was waiting for his exchange, the cashier retreated, took a photo of the suspect, and called the police. The suspect fled the scene after becoming suspicious.

Both the photo and two false €50 bills landed in the search system of the Coburger Kriminaldauerdienst service. He was deemed a wanted man for fiscal fraud. After a while, the brother of the defendant’s current fiancé started the police academy and recognized the man in a photo.

A house raid followed. Among other things, his laptop was confiscated. The accused objected to the seizure, arguing that the €600-laptop wasn’t even paid off. Nevertheless, Judge Barausch and prosecutor Philip Pasch remained tough on the issue:

“With the laptop, the counterfeit money was ordered from the darknet, so it is a (crime) tool that must be secured,” said Barausch. The accused finally agreed.

He paid €30-worth of bitcoin for a few fake €50 notes. However, the bills looked phony. As the culprit would declare himself in front of the judge, the whole operation was “naive.” The young man described how he had an awful feeling when opening the darkweb envelope. He took out the unconvincing forged bills but decided to use them, anyhow.

The trial ended with a sentence of one year of probation. Three months less than what the prosecution had asked. Furthermore, the defendant must pay €500 euros to a non-profit organization. The court considered it an isolated incident and took into consideration the fact that the man was soon to get married to his fiancé. Even if he was three years older than the minimum age to qualify for penal juvenility, the court took into consideration his “good social forecast” and favored a suspended sentence.

Austrian man got a €6,400 fine and a ten-month suspended sentence for ordering a pizza and a taxi cab with darkweb counterfeit money — he had a stable job with a €1,900 salary

On Monday 3rd of February 2019, a 31-year-old Austrian man from Vorarlberg received a suspended prison term of ten months, €6000 penalty, and additional €400 fine for the court proceedings.

The culprit had ordered 48 false banknotes of €50 from the darkweb. He then paid a pizza and a taxi cab with the fake euros. However, not even a month after the darknet order had been placed, police has raided the man’s residence securing the leftover fake currency. More shockingly for the prosecution, the man had a stable job with a monthly salary of €1900.

Nobody in court has disputed the naivety of the man’s illegal actions. Pledging for a lenient sentence, defense attorney Stefan Denifl had this to declare:

“My client has a good job, leads a decent lifestyle, and regrets his rudeness very much.” He continued saying that he had fallen under temptation.

The sentence is final. According to the Austrian Penal Code, whoever knowingly inserts into circulation counterfeit money, is liable for punishment of no less than one year in prison. Furthermore, there weren’t any aggravating circumstances such as major economic damage, acting on a commercial basis, being part of a gang, or using violence. Thus, the defendant received a suspended sentence and a hefty fine.

A Frenchman was arrested for trying to shop with a darknet-acquired fake ID and paper check in a shopping center in Nantes

cityscape-3327441_960_720[1].jpgThe city of Nantes, France

The 29-yeard-old man was apprehended on Wednesday 30th of January 2018 after trying to pay for goods with a forged ID and paper check in a shopping center in Nantes. The man has confessed his crime, and upon checking his residence, police found thirteen counterfeit €50 banknotes. Items purchased on the deep web, he declared.

The suspect was arrested Wednesday afternoon after paying for his shopping cart with the fake check and ID. However, the management of the hypermarket has blacklisted his fake financial references after the man scammed the same store on 23rd of November and 3rd of December of 2018. The cashier delayed the transaction and alerted the mall security.

Police arrived and took the suspect for questioning where he admitted everything. The accused told investigators he was in severe economic distress which rendered him desperate. He said he paid 350 euros for six check forms.

Putting into circulation counterfeit currency and using false identification are two crimes that require very severe penalties by the French Penal Code. Although the court might take into consideration the defendant’s mitigating factor of financial difficulties, he still risks a maximum of ten years in prison and a fine of up to €150,000.

A 22-year-old German got a two-year suspended sentence, fines, and over 150 hours of community work for using darkweb counterfeit money and committing “carding” fiscal fraud — police had to pick him up from home on trial day because he slept in

Tuesday 29th of January 2018, the Böblinger District Court sentenced Yusuf D., a 22-year-old German man to two years of suspension, fines, and over 150 hours of community work for 163 accusations of computer fraud including credit card fraud, unauthorized data-gathering, and counterfeit trafficking.

The sentencing started without the defendant. In an almost tragicomic scene, everybody was present except the offender. While waiting, Judge Ralf Rose directed some words of wisdom towards the silent and attending courtroom:

“Those who are late, are punished by life.” Not an ideal way to set things up.

Finally, not before waiting 40 minutes, the defendant enters the courtroom with two policemen by his side and with a sleepy face. He’s sorry but he didn’t recall having sentencing so early in the day.

boblingen.png640px-AG-Boeblingen[1].jpg                                                         District Court Böblingen

He was arrested in March 2018 after a supermarket cashier alerted the police of an unsuccessful attempt by a young man to buy groceries with a €50 bill. The police then interviewed the cashier who got a firm look at Yusuf before escaping the store premises. Law enforcement proceeded to track down the culprit and found his darknet crime pseudonym: “Azerbaijan61.” They raided his house, where he lived with his father in the east of Stuttgart, and seized high-value goods.

Since finishing high-school in 2013, the young Böblinger doesn’t really know what to do with himself. He wanted to become a train driver or soccer player, but choose darkweb scamming as his new career, with little success. In 2015, under the nickname Azerbaijan61, he ordered for the first time fake €20 banknotes. So-called “flowers” in darknet slang. In the following years, he dedicated himself to “carding,” or credit card fraud.

Using counterfeit or stolen account information, the defendant illegally made online orders in the four-digit range. The young man bought clothes and electrical appliances for a fraction of the total estimated value of 4800 euros. Notebooks with a value of €1600 cost him only €300. Only in rare cases did the card’s security system blocked the illegal transfers and protected its users.

“I was surprised that things went so smoothly,” says the young trickster.

When asked how did the goods found their way to him anonymously, he replied that by using other providers, the defendant acquired two mailboxes to which he could conveniently send the stolen goods.

The culprit operated mainly on a darkweb Netherland-based site called “Crimenetwork.biz” where people would trade illegally-obtained goods for stolen credentials, cryptocurrency, card information, or other products. His second preferred platform was “Fraudsters,” where he’d engage in various credit card scams and phishing. The estimated profits from 2015 and 2017 are in the tens of thousands of euros. More so, the accused had even purchased gold bars worth around €22,000.

On top of the fiscal fraud accusations, Yusuf D. was also accused of identity theft. He wanted to get an Italian passport for 200 euros. With his Italian identity and his residence in Herrenberg, the adolescent was thus also liable for ID falsification.

The “not so terribly professional” scammer, as described by the prosecution, received a suspended sentence of two years, over 150 hours of community work, fines, and propriety seizing. Both the prosecution and judge made it clear that the defendant got lucky being sentenced as a juvenile. Since the criminal acts were rather minor and being under 24 years of age, Yusuf D. qualified under the German Juvenile Justice Act.

A 25-year-old chemistry student from Sweden was caught ordering darkweb heroin, cocaine, amphetamine, and methamphetamine in DVD cases to his dorm room — he’s also accused of using counterfeit euro banknotes

The 25-year-old Swedish chemistry student from the district of Valla in Linköping was raided on 1st of November 2018 after the customs officers confiscated several drug orders from the Netherlands destined for the student. The last postal order, however, involved nearly half of kilogram of amphetamines packed in several DVD cases discovered at the customs of Arlanda.

In total, the Customs at Arlanda found 495 grams of amphetamine, 0.49 grams of cocaine, and 15 counterfeit €50 banknotes, in the four DVD cases.

Upon the raid, police officers found various types of drugs, scales, paraphernalia, packaging materials, and notes that indicated information about past orders and sellers. Authorities also found fifteen €50 counterfeit banknotes and confiscated his computer, cell phones, and other relevant electronic devices for further investigation.

More so, his laptop was connected to a darknet platform when the officers arrived. Fortunately for the policemen, the accused didn’t have time to close his laptop, which would’ve canceled the browsing history.

On the 19th of August 2018, the man has, among other things, received a shipment containing almost ten grams of heroin.

The man is accused of drug trafficking and illegal use of counterfeit money. He denies the crimes completely but hasn’t presented any explanation as to why the items were addressed to him. Nevertheless, the student faces between two and seven years of prison if found guilty on all charges. The trial is underway.

Thirteen suspects from the Italian Lovato clan are finally being sent to court after operation “Bitcoin” successfully ended — 100 kilograms of drugs (photo) and €200,000 in cash seized

Code-named operation “Bitcoin,” sponsored by the Italian public ministry of
Benedetto Roberti has successfully ended with the capture of 100 kilograms of drugs, €200.000 in cash, and thirteen suspects sent in court on various accusations of money laundering and narcotics trafficking as of 23 of January 2019.

An underworld criminal gang known as the Lovato clan from Padova, Italy was raided on 9th of October 2018 after almost two years of infiltrating undercover agents, surveillance, and intranet monitoring — the group conducted the majority of its business through the darknet. The months of hard detective work by the Mobile Squad of Padova Police Headquarters culminated in a break-and-enter raid which resulted in the arrest of 9 people, 100 kg of drugs, and €200,000 in cash.

The sting operation resulted in 25 kilograms of hashish, 75 kilograms of marijuana, 200 grams of cocaine, hallucinogen shrooms, opium, cannabis biscuits, paraphernalia, packaging material, and the cash sum of €205 thousand.

Among the accused, is the leader of the gang Emanuele “Dottore” Lovato. A 35-year-old man originally from Verona who was in charge of the “Alexander” bar in San Francesco street.

More so, Lovato’s trusted friend, 21-year-old Piero Pasqualin is also going to court. Piero is a bass player originally from Treviso, cited as one of the thirteen suspects. Piero was in charge of Lovato’s financials. He would convert money into cryptocurrency, order drugs from the deep web, communicate with the sellers via encrypted messaging through Wicker app, and would personally unload the parcels as seen in the police surveillance photos.

Millions of euros were spent on the darkweb to buy drugs from Spain and The Netherlands through Bitcoin and Ethereum. Police estimate a total profit of €20 million which were partially laundered by Emanuele Lovato and another accomplice Marte Denyz Akyil. Both received accusations of money laundering and fiscal fraud.

Lovato was renting a €1,600 villa in Mentana street where he accommodated three of his associates: 30-year-old Raul Buta, 24-year-old Omar Abo Rai, and 29-years-old Marte Denyz Akyil. In the villa, the police found 20 kilograms of drugs cleverly hidden in a modified piece of furniture.

Furthermore, the ringleader kept drugs in his own house where he was living with his concubine Marianna Zoia. More drugs were found in two other apartments, one in Belzoni street and one in Lepanto street, both pertaining to the couple.

The chain of raids started with a breakthrough in Milan where police entered the residence of father and son Claudio and Andrea La Rosa. The duo was storing the bulk of the drugs before sending it to Padova via the courier. Police found the €205.000 in their house.

The main courier for the large drug parcels was 20-year old Francesco Di Maria who was arrested in June 2018 with 11 kilograms of marijuana at an Autogrill highway stop in the proximity of Limenella. The policemen became suspicious of a Citroen C1 car parked in the service area for too long, under the sun with the air conditioner on. The car resulted to be leased from Milan, and upon searching, they found 11 kilograms of marijuana divided in packs of one kilogram. By searching the car’s GPS, the policemen tracked the destination to a warehouse in Milan where they found 39 kilograms of marijuana and packaging material of an estimated value of €300.000 in street money.

Another stash house was located in Turin, 27-year-old Lorenzo Dal Fabbro was arrested, alongside 24-year-old Abo Raia. A total of 16 different raids were executed.

The organization was trafficking large quantities of drugs through the city of Santo. As a helping hand, Lovato involved his 37-year-old concubine, Marianna Zoia who initially denied any form of involvement. Furthermore, many other acquaintances were working for the “Doctor,” as Lovato was known locally: couriers, students, bass players, and singers, even “runners” that would get paid €100 a day to do Lovato’s bidding.

On 28th of December 2018, the public prosecutor solicited the immediate judgment of Emanuele Lovato, Marianna Zoia, Raul Buta, and Lorenzo Dal Fabbro, considered the dome of the organization. Now the process also opens up for the accomplices. They are facing a minimum of ten years of incarceration.

Three men were sentenced to a total of 43 and a half years in jail for selling fentanyl and carfentanyl across the United Kindom and abroad

Jake Levene (left), 22-years-old and Mandy Christopher Lowther (right), 21-years-old were sentenced to 16.5 years each, while the third member in-charge of packaging, 45-years-old Lee Childs (middle) received 10.5 years of imprisonment.

They were sentenced on Friday 18th of January 2019 at the Leeds Crown Court after pleading guilty to multiple accusations of class-A drug trafficking, mainly fentanyl and its analog carfentanyl. The very strong synthetic opioids are 100 times and 10,000 times stronger, respectively than morphine. Most shockingly, the gang was mixing the two compounds using bulking agents at an improvised laboratory in an industrial unit in Peel Street, Leeds and was reselling the extremely potent and unstable substances over the darknet, under the name of “UKBargins.”

leeds 2.pngInvestigators have identified six British clients of the criminal trio that have overdosed and died from fentanyl consumption. Although not yet confirmed by forensics, the investigators suspect the gang’s potent mix of fentanyl and carfentanyl to be the cause at least one of the cases.

The criminal group sold 2,853 parcels to 443 clients internationally and 172 nationally for a total estimated profit of £163,474 between December of 2016 and April of 2017.


Police officers from the National Crime Agency and West Yorkshire Police raided the small facility and confiscated the largest amount of carfentanyl ever to be seized in Europe — 2.6kg of carfentanyl. Another batch of 440 grams was of extreme purity.

Drug-facility[1].png… knows what this is???!! IT IS EVIL

Senior Investigating Officer Graham Roberts declared: “Fentanyl and carfentanyl are extremely potent, the latter having no medical uses for humans. Not only is it potentially lethal for those taking it, but these drugs also pose a serious danger to all those that come into contact with them, be that first responders like law enforcement and medical staff, or in this case, postal staff.”

“UKBargins” site was listed on AlphaBay dark web market. As a warning, the homepage read the message:


However, the written moral warning did not convince the judges. After the lengthy prison terms, each member has to adhere to strict parole included in the Serious Crime Prevention Order. Meaning internet and communication restrictions, limitations on the possession of virtual currencies or certain chemicals. If the conditions are not met, they risk further years in prison.

0_Fentanyl-drugs-court-case[1].jpgPoliceman Graham Roberts added:

“Childs, Lowther, and Levene knew these drugs were life-threatening yet they continued to sell them for their own financial gain. The lengthy jail terms handed down to them today are a reflection on their dangerous and careless actions. This operation shut down their business, therefore taking out a key international supplier of the chemicals. However, the threat from synthetic opioids remains and the NCA works with law enforcement partners, using all the tools at our collective disposal to tackle this worldwide threat.”

leeds.pngDetective Superintendent Pat Twiggs of West Yorkshire Police, declared:

“I welcome the sentencing of Childs, Lowther, and Levene for their role in manufacturing and distributing potentially lethal illegal drugs from the heart of our communities in West Yorkshire. While we cannot prove that the specific batches of fentanyl and carfentanil they sold from Morley caused deaths directly, both kinds of substance are linked to many fatalities. We worked closely with the NCA to investigate and then dismantle this operation and I think the sentences given to these persons reflect the danger their activity posed.”

A drug-peddling gang from Enschede, Holland is in court for smuggling narcotics through the Ahaus border to Germany for an estimated total of €400,000

On Monday morning 21st of January 2018, the district court in Münster saw the appearance of two members of a gang accused of international hard-drug trafficking.

The two Dutchmen played different roles within the criminal group: 29-year-old Frank. L. was a high-ranking member, while 25-year-old Lukas R. from the Dutch city of Goor was responsible for crossing the border into Germany and sending the parcels from the Ahauser post office for modest sums of tens of euros per delivery. More precisely, €10 for a small box and €50 euros for larger ones where they’d negotiate conditions.

Lukas R. would cross the border into Germany and send the vacuum-sealed narcotics nationally or internationally from Ahauser post offices in order to better evade police controls. Until just a couple of months ago, the gang sold marijuana and hashish but also harder drugs such as ecstasy and amphetamines for an estimated total of €400,000.


One of these couriers was Lukas R. from the Dutch city of Goor. Even before the trial began, Lukas arranged his full admission of guilt with his lawyer. He read his statement with trembling hands and voice, saying that he received the “job” offer in March 2018 in a coffee shop in Enschede. Furthermore, he declared that he never checked the packages:

“I was unemployed for a short time, and I was convinced that it was just hashish and marijuana,” said the 25-year-old.

However, most orders contained MDMA and amphetamines. The prosecutor remained skeptical:

“Have you never been suspicious? Marijuana packages of that weight would have been many times bigger.”

Lukas R. denied. Although he admitted to smoking marijuana on a regular basis, he had never dealt with such amounts. In addition, he pointed out that he had demonstrably rejected a €1500 offer for smuggling cocaine:

“I would never do that.” There was a clear moral limit for Lukas.

For the proven eight journeys from Enschede to Ahaus and Nordhorn, the 25-year-old could go to jail for up to four years. Another gang trafficker was sentenced by the same court in August of 2018 to imprisonment for three years and nine months.

On the other hand, higher-ranking 29-year-old Frank. L. was more discrete in his declarations. Also because Lukas R. has incriminated him multiple times before the judge:

“Most of the supplies I received personally from him,” says Lukas R.

To make things worse, the detectives found the key of the drug stash on Frank L., confirming the testimony of Lukas R. At the end of the hearing on Monday, the court announced:

“If the defendant (Lukas R.) engages in a detailed confession, the maximum sentence for imprisonment is eight years and six months. The lower limit is eight years.”

Implying that the accused could alleviate his sentence by giving a full confession. Moreso, the maximum punishment isn’t fixed yet as the case is still pending in await of capturing the gang leader who is still at large. Thus, also implying that if the defendant chooses to hinder the investigation, he could face more than eight years and six months of incarceration.

Lukas, however, gave signals of wanting to fully cooperate with the authorities, taking into consideration past private meetings with the judge and prosecution.

“We want to formulate it together and bring it to the next meeting,” said the lawyer of Frank L.

The trial before the district court has assumed considerable proportions, involving many individuals, some of them still uncaptured such as the ringleader of the group. Such a large trial has also created substantial bureaucracy. The prosecutor needed 50 minutes just to read the 1200-page indictment at the start of the hearing. Process still in course.

A 15-year-old Italian female student collapses in the school bathroom and has convulsions after smoking darkweb marijuana — male friend under investigation for offering narcotics and using counterfeit

On Friday 18th of January 2019, a 15-year-old girl from the Italian city of Campobasso collapsed under aggressive convulsions after smoking what appears to be marijuana offered by one of her older male friends. She was taken to the “Cardarelli” hospital in a semi-conscious state and is under stable condition. More interesting is the fact that the results for traditional drugs came negative, meaning that the girl might have assumed designer drugs which are notoriously more chemically unstable.

Her older male friend who offered the unidentified narcotics is under police inquiry. The police searched his backpack at school as well as his house and found a number of fake €20 banknotes at his residence. Furthermore, preliminary investigations indicate that the deep web drug order was placed by the boy with money from several other individuals for a single order of between €300 and €500.


Istituto Comprensivo D’Ovidio

A day after the incident, the Mobile Squad policemen, the Provincial Health Office, and the Traffic Police were involved in an education and information class on the risks related to the consumption of drugs at the Comprehensive Institute “D’Ovidio” of Campobasso, where they held a meeting with about 50 high-school students, during which the students showed, once again, considerable interest on the subject, formulating questions to the police officers and expressing curiosity and perplexity on the topic.

The suspect is accused of violation of art. 455 of the Italian criminal code which regards spending and introducing counterfeit money into the State’s financial circulation. The penal code requires incarceration from 3 to 12 years and fines from €516 to €3.098. Adjacently, he’s investigated for drug trafficking. However, he’ll be judged as a minor and will most likely receive a suspended sentence, rehabilitation coercion, and fines.
