Darkmarket forum - International fraudesters website closed by Polic
A website used by criminals to buy and sell credit card details and bank log-ins has been shut down after a police operation, the BBC has learned.
International forum Darkmarket ran for three years and led to fraud totalling millions of pounds.
Nearly 60 people connected with the site have been arrested in cities including London and Manchester as well as in Germany, Turkey and the US.
The FBI spent two years gathering evidence after infiltrating the site.
The Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca), which has been leading the UK investigation, said it was "a one-stop shop" for criminals.
The arrests were made after computer experts, including some former hackers, followed electronic trails left by site users.
A total of 11 people were arrested in the UK. As well as London and Manchester, raids took place in Leicester, Humberside and South Yorkshire.
