Hi. Today carding is known everywhere in the world. If you want to understand how the carding works you’re in the right place.
Dumps are used by carders to clone real cards and then use the clones as the genuine. So, those clones are duplication of the real cards and can be used as the real cards. How is it possible? The answer is Dump!
So what is dump? And here is the answer. The dump is a bank data connected to a bank account and encoded to the magnetic stripe of the bank card. So each card is attached to a bank account. The card is a terminal which allows the account owner to access his account fund without the necessity to walk into the bank. Cards can be used with ATM or POS, this is also bank terminals. So if someone gets access to the information stored in the magnetic stripe of the card then he has full access to the owner’s card account and the money saved in it.
That is not difficult to steal a dump from the card. Dumps obtained by skimming, sniffing or hacking. So each and every time a person pay with the card he or she assumes the risk that the card data could be stolen.
Bank dumps have usual 3 tracks, but if any of the 3 tracks is correct and there is a sufficient quantity of funds on the account then the card is good to be used and the requested transaction can be approved.
Track 1 is the only track of the card which contains the holder name. Carder uses to change the name from the track to match with the fake ID’s they have or with the name embossed on the plastic. This track is written with a code known as odd parity or DEC SIXBIT. Track 1 format is B5466160081187237^SHORT/JAMES D ^140910100000023001000000415000000
START SENTINEL = is 1 character, usual % FORMAT CODE = a single character, financial cards format code is B PRIMARY ACCOUNT NUMBER (PAN) = usual is the card number, but not always FIELD SEPARATOR = financial cards use a single symbol for it which is ^ NAME OF CARDHOLDER = contain 2 until 26 characters FIELD SEPARATOR = symbol for it is ^ EXPIRE DATE = in format YYMM (year, month) SERVICE CODE = three characters DISCRETIONARY DATA = which may contain PIN VERIFICATION KEY (it is not the ATM PIN), card verification value, CVV END SENTINEL = is 1 character, usual? Track 2 is the track developed by the banking industry and it is the most important track of a dump. Almost all dumps will work if this track 2 is correct. It is written with a 5 bit-scheme, 4 data bits, and 1 parity. This track data format is START SENTINEL = is usual 1 character ; PRIMARY ACCOUNT NUMBER (PAN) = usual the card number SEPARATOR = usual symbol = is used EXPIRE DATE = in YYMM format SERVICE CODE = a three digits code DISCRETIONARY DATA = which may contain PIN VERIFICATION KEY (it is not the ATM PIN), card verification value, CVV END SENTINEL = usual the symbol?
Track 3 is virtually unused by the major worldwide networks. It was developed by Thrift Saving Industry. Points Of Sales does not read this track.
The card service code is a 3 digits code present in both track 1 and tracks 2. Each of 3 digits of the code has a meaning and reading these digits together as a service code let us know where and how the card can be used.
If the first digit is:
1-card is for international use 2-card is for international use but has a chip 5-card is for national use 6-card is for national use but has a chip 7-card is not good for interchange except for bilateral agreements 9-test card
If the second digit is:
0-card is normal, without restriction 2-issuer must be contacted via online means 4-issuer must be contacted via online means except under bilateral agreements
If the last digit is:
0-no restriction but the PIN is required 1-no restrictions 2-card can be used for goods and services payment but not for cash 3-ATM use only, the PIN is required 4-cash only 5-card can be used for goods and services payment but not for cash but the PIN is required 6-no restrictions, PIN should be used where is feasible 7-card can be used for goods and services payment but not for cash but PIN should be used where is feasible
So, the card magnetic strip or/and chip contain all the information to access and operate a bank account connected to this card. If someone copied a card magnetic strip, that person can use a machine called MSR, Magnetic Strip Reader-Writer and write the data from the card to another card and use the clone as the genuine card.
If you think that it is hard to copy the magnetic strip to a card you must know that a simple swipe to a mini MSR or the swipe of card in a compromised POS is all the carders need to get the data from the genuine card and get the access to the card owners to account. So it’s easy to start the business.
Be aware of police and have good luck and lots of $$$.
