    We are part of a research paper

    This might have been posted already but it's a good read
    https://www.usenix.org/system/files/sec21-sun-zhibo.pdf

    We manually analyzed each publicly accessible forum on
    this list, and for each that was still online and had at least
    100 threads in scam-related sections, we (1) exhaustively
    crawled its public content and (2) recursively applied the
    same process to discover other candidate forum URLs. We
    ultimately identified and crawled four forums suitable for our
    analysis: ********** (NULLED), ****************.net (*****),
    Sinister**** (SIN), and MPGH.net (MPGH).
    Reposting as my threads and replies were deleted during my ban.

    Thank you for the unban. I was quite surprised they went with MPGH as part of the 3. The new popular forum I guess was in its infancy at the time.

    The most interesting thing was looking at these researchers' background, the main guy's a CS PhD, I don't know why I thought it'd be cybersecurity or something. The second guy is though, for PayPal which is quite interesting, oh and he owns his own forum which is rather large lol. It's always nice seeing what these guys are up to.

    Even more interesting at their university Cybersecurity is under CS. At the university I went to, Cybersecurity was separate from the CS degree. That's neat and it makes sense.

    Just another topic to pretend to be interesting, MPGH hasn't been active in that market for a long time now.
    100% bet you the topic creators use the methods themselves because they understand the world is corrupt and fairness does not equate to fair treatment.

    The paper was published in August 2021, and I think I remember the final submission deadline being February 2021 for that conference. That means the main research and data collection were done starting early-mid 2020 at the latest.

    At that time, we didn't have any restrictions or remove content related to the paper.

    I read some of its content and it is indeed interesting especially for someone who had an idea what it is all about. But for people who have no background or any idea about it, I think they might find it confusing or less interesting.

    Then it makes no sense, the other forum comparable to the one was definitely active - it would have been a perfect match, maybe that's the problem.

    We had refunding services allowed at the time still. Refunding and Social Engineering services were still active and common. The only thing we removed really early on was Amazon refunding. It makes sense to include MPGH, being one of the top sites listed on the notorious markets list year after year. The rest of the site might have seen big activity drops but the marketplace was still thriving at the time.
