Fake Accounts and the Black Market
Sales of fake Internet accounts continue to increase.

These are accounts created in bulk using phony information (name, email, address, etc.) simply for the purpose of abusing good users online. Just about any type of fake account can be purchased: email, blogging, social networking or auction/classifieds. Fraudsters use these fake accounts for various forms of nefarious activities, including spamming, phishing attempts, affiliate fraud and e-commerce fraud; their primary motivation, of course, is taking your money.
