Gift Card Formats:
Ah yes, Figured everyone wanted to make their own Fake Amazon, Xbox, Google Play gift cards to bait scammers with, Obviously they’re not going to work unless someone managed to get super unlucky but I’ll walk everyone through the steps of ensuring no issues.
XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX (0-9 AZ, Not case sensitive)
XXXX-XXXX-XXXX (0-9 A-Z Not Case Sensitive)
Amazon(.)com “US Digital”:
(AG)XXXXX-XXXXXXX-XXXXX (A-Z 0-9 Begins with “AG” but maybe different nowadays)
Amazon(.)com Physical US
X = Whatever character that’s A to Z and 1 to 9 pick whatever you wish but do remember some cards have a 4, 6 or 8 digit pin number I.e Gamestop, Walmart and Victoria’s Secret (I Have a GF, So I know VS and GS does at the very least)
DO NOT MAKE MORE THAN YOU NEED FOR THAT BAIT, OBVIOUSLY THE SCAMMER WILL NEED TO WAIT AS YOU"GO TO THE STORE BUT OFC SERVICE DROPS OR YOU SEEN A COP THIS REASON BEING IS YOU’RE GOING TO NEED TO CHECK THE INFO AND DISPOSE OF IT AFTER THE BAIT THE SCAMMER ISN’T INTERESTED IN THESE CARDS AS THEY’RE VERY UNLIKELY TO WORK SO MAKE THEM, VERIFY THEY’RE NON-WORKING AND DISPOSE OF THEM AFTERWARDS.
Google - Obviously a good one
Stack Exchange - General All Around Programming Forum
YouTube - Good for learning the basic
W3Schools Freemium learning site dating back to 1998 good for Learning most of the common programming langs so no worries all around good site worth paying for premium features.
I wanted to “Dedicate” a section based on setting up your desktop or for those looking for proper specs.
- You want around 16 GBs of DDR4 Memory for running VMs
- Desktops over laptops, They’re built to last longer and are more stable
- You want a good threaded CPU, I do not have a personal choice here but whatever
- For GFX Cards, an NVIDIA 1050-2080 is a good range to start with reduces strain on CPU graphics
- 1TB SSD/HDD/NVMe is a good if you opt to steal files or have more than one VM
- Having good internet connection is a a must but even having “slower” speeds is fine, a scammer don’t care and is more likely to believe it because you’re running Windows 7 Professional in 2022.
- Have a linux host, this will greatly reduce GPU/CPU usage while baiting.
Not much of a config really but it’ll do for now
