One of the Rescator websites, which was one of two websites used to help sell bulk credit cards from the Target breach, had the following message to greet potential customers: "Hi subhumans and miscreants, your fraud site is gone now. Go away."

 

The websites are now back online.

 

Rescator has been responsible as a clearinghouse to sell stolen credit and debit card information from Target, Sally Beauty Supply, Neiman Marcus, and other compromised retailers. The website domains point towards websites based in the former Soviet Union, Colombia, and Cocos Islands.
