How can a dox process look like?

Take the scenario where you are selling a product and someone makes a chargeback. What do you have to begin with?
(In this scenario the payment was made with Bitcoin)

  • IP Address

 

  1. First of all you can locate the IP address
  2. Then you can start looking up the IP on databases
  3. From that you will get new data (IP addresses, Emails, passwords)
  4. And you continue looking the new data up and connecting it.
  5. Then you are able to find social medias with the helps of the emails.
  6. And you continue building on..

That is how a dox can look like, of course it is different for all occasions. But this is how it looked like for me recently. The point is that you should always keep building and confirming the information that you have. If you know its geo-location that is in France and then you have a Facebook account where he's clearly not from France, then you can maybe rule it out and keep or digging.

What can I do with a dox?

There are many things that I could mention, but they are mostly black hat related things which are disallowed to discuss. But take the scenario that I mentioned above, you get scammed online, they should be expected to be doxed then; you can use the dox to get back what you lost. You are honestly only limited by your imagination. This is what you can theoretically do:

  • You can leak the dox for other people to use the information provided. The most common way to leak is through Pastebin and such. Here are the most common ones:

 

  1. Pastee
  2. Pasted
  3. Hastebin
  4. Chop
  5. Pastebin
  6. Ghostbin
  • If you have your target's IP address and you go to IP-tracker sites and then basically send an abuse notice to his hosting provider. Here are some commonly used IP-tracker sites:

 

  1. IP-tracker
  2. IPaddress
  3. IP-lookup
  • There are so much more. But as I mentioned, it is mostly black hat related things. But if you actually talking about a real fraud here, or you know that this person has committed any crimes, you can use the dox to report that person to the FBI or your local police.

Doxing on Hack Forums

Many users believe that doxing other Hack Forums users are strictly forbidden, but that is false. You are in fact allowed to dox any HF user you want for any reason. However, you are not allowed to share, leak, spread the dox or anything of that kind on the forum. You are also not allowed to treat or harass any other forum members.

Here is what is stated in the Rules and Etiquette / Rules and Etiquette:

Quote:1. Members are not allowed to engage in threatening behavior toward other members. This includes flaming. Also threats to steal accounts, dox, or swat. This includes any on-site material such as posts, PMs, or profiles.

And here is what is stated in Hack Forums / ... / Private Investigation Methods and Anonymity:

Quote:1. No posting of private data.
2. No discussions on intimidation, threatening behavior, blackmailing or physically harming anyone.

This is also worth mentioning Disallowed BlackHat Activity:

Quote:Identity Theft
This is another topic we feel is purely criminal in nature and we won't allow that here. Topics on stealing identities will be removed immediately.

Tip of the thread: Do you want to find the Skype of a Hack Forums user? Try using this command in Google:

Code 
site:https://hackforums.net/ USERNAME Skype:

Doxing templates and making it easier for yourself

When doxing, you will be using many different websites to gather information about your target. Using your web browser's bookmark field, you can create a folder within folders and so on; create a new folder and name it "Doxing" and inside you can have sub-folder for different resources when doxing. For example "Dox release", "IP tools", "Using the real name", "Using phone number" and such, collect your resources within the folders to have it easily accessible.

Resources folder (Click to View)

So when doxing, you most likely want a doxing template to parse information you gather. Use a template and save it in a text editor to edit throughout your process of doxing. There are tons templates online; all are pretty much the same, they all look something like this:

Code

[#] Reason of Dox:

Using Skype

Deals and such are often dealt over Skype because of its massive communication platform, and things can easily go wrong over there; a currency exchange scam, your partner might try to play you, threats against you or your family, and much more. Knowing how to use your targets Skype in order to dox is crucial to know. Sometimes the best place to start is the least obvious. (If you have your target on Skype) Click on your target's avatar; you will get information such as birth date, gender, language, skype name, phone number, and country.

Birth date: While this is not always correct, considering that most people put fake birth dates, this can potentially be used to compare to another birth date that you parse from another investigation method.
Gender: This is in most cases true, you do not have much use of this information thought.
Language: Many people do not put their native language there. Instead, they put English, but in some cases, you will find people having their language set as their native.
Skype name: This is, of course, the most important, will show you below how to use this to parse more information.
Phone number: Believe it or not, but there are people who accidentally set their actual phone number here because they are not aware that it is public.
Country: Not important, it depends on how the language situation is looking.

You mainly want to use that information to compare, not to use for your actual dox and that is because of how unreliable it is; most of the times, the information is fake. - So, moving on to using your victims Skype name; to just Google, the Skype name directly won’t get you as far as this command will get you:

Code 
skype: username

So, “what can I do with this search” is something you might be wondering, and first of all, if this user is registered here on Hack Forums, and the user have ever made a post saying something like “Hey, add my Skype ******”, then you will be able to find that post with this search, and there you go, you now have his Hack Forums account. You can add that to “Other” in the doxxing template. Continuing using only the Skype ID. So there are something named “Skype resolver”, basically it gets the IP-address of your target. Skype resolvers comes and goes, but there are ones that are working as of (03/00/2017) which are:

With the two mentioned above, the user needs to be Online. And there is this one which can be used to see if the IP has been stored using the resolver before.

Email to Skype
There are two methods to go from Email to Skype and the first one is using sites such as:

  1. MostwantedHF [ http://mostwantedhf.info/email.php]
  2. Skypegrab [ http://skypegrab.net/email2skype.php]

The second one is the best and easiest which is when you simply go to the search field of Skype and enter the email. Then you will get Skype(s) which as the email connected to it.

IP to Skype
Same goes here, these two sites provides this type of search:

  1. MostwantedHF [ http://mostwantedhf.info/ip2skype.php]
  2. Skypegrab [ http://skypegrab.net/ip2skype.php]

Skype to Email[/list]

  1. MostwantedHF [ http://mostwantedhf.info/skype2email.php]
  2. Skypegrab [ http://skypegrab.net/skype2email.php]

Locating your target

The IP-addresses that you gathered from the Skype resolver might not be your target’s current ones, but they might show the correct location. First of all, you can add the IP-address to the template, and secondly, you can use the IP-address to get the location of him. Head over to; IP-tracker.org - enter one IP address a time that you got from “Database records” on your Skype resolver site. Compare every search and then decide which one is probably the one. You will be getting information beyond your imagination! Such as ISP provider, Country, Capital, State, City Location, Postal, Hostname, and much more. Head over to your doxing template, add new tabs and fill in old.

Finding your target’s email address

There are some methods that I would want to show, but they are not allowed to be discussed here on the forum. They are mostly based on using your target’s Paypal, Amazon and eBay in order to get their information, but I won’t go any further from here. Facebook can be a very useful site when it comes to acquiring information, especially someone's email address. Make a simple Google search of your target’s real name and see if you can find his or hers Facebook. If they have their details open for everyone, just grab their email from there. When it comes to Facebook, you can also import your contacts through Yahoo to find their email. So go ahead and create a Yahoo account and on the top left corner where it says “contacts”, simply choose Facebook. Login and import the contacts and then you should have their email.
Other than that you can use Skype to your advantage. There are two Skype2Email services that I tend to use:

 

  1. Skypegrab [ http://skypegrab.net/skype2email.php]
  2. MostwantedHF [ http://mostwantedhf.info/skype2email.php]

Tip: Sometime’s the most obvious place to look is the last place you look. Did your target ever send you any money over Paypal or such site? Check the transaction details for their email.

Using your target’s email address

Having your target’s email address is definitely one of the better things to have considering that every service online is connected to an email, and some of them display it public for different reasons. There are a few common methods that you can use:

  • Email to Skype method
    [1] So, there are two methods to find your target’s Skype using Email. The first one, is very basic, just like the mentioned Facebook method above. Head over to Skype and in the “Search” field, enter the email and hit “Search Skype”. Simple as that, if you target has a Skype connected with the email you entered, you will find it.
    [2] The second method to do this is to again use the mostwantedhf site. Head over to the “Email2Skype” tab and simply enter the email you wish to look up.

Search result (Click to View)

  • The PayPal method
    Again, very basic yet very effective. Just be careful, this method will include you having to send money, which will tell your information as well. Make sure that you are hidden and safe. So, you have your target’s email, simply make a new transaction and send the minimum amount possible ($0.01), when sent, head over to the main page and click on the transaction. Make sure that you send as “Friends and family”.

    You will get your target’s first name and last name using this method.

Getting house information

Using Zillow and Realtor you can get information such as; how many baths they have; when the house was built, how big their yard is, how much their house is worth and such. You can also use Google Maps to get a better view where they live. This is something again that you can add to your doxxing template, take screenshots and add data.

Zillow data (Click to View)

Sift Tool

There is an in-depth tutorial on using Sift Tool already,here, however, the links are broken so I re-wrote it here. So credits to Adroit for the Sift tutorial. Sift tool is a tool created to grab data from databases with ease. This tutorial will not include how to obtain databases and dumps because they can include personal information and there’s simply a black hat related rule here on the forum. So let’s respect that.

Dumps / Combo Lists Disallowed BlackHat Activity:

Quote:Dumps / Combo Lists
Providing accounts that don't belong to you, whether in trades, for sale, or free, dumps are not allowed. The definition of a
dump is a file with logins, passwords, personal details or emails. We do define "combo lists" as dumps as well.

First, create a map on your desktop and name “Databases” or whatever you deem fit. Head over to Sift Tool and download a version that works for your operating system. Then you simply copy Sift.exe and the license file to the folder you created, then add your databases in there. It uses the command prompt to work. So when you want to search in your databases you need to know some basics of Command Prompt. You created your folder on your desktop, and if you named it “Databases”,
this should be your directory “C:\Users\Maxim\Desktop\Databases” except for “Maxim” which is my computer name. If you are unsure what your folder directory is named, simply locate it in file explorer and copy the URL.

[Image: NjZzc1m.png]

Copy the URL and head over to Command Prompt. Type “CMD” in your start menu and run as administrator. Once in CMD, you need to change your directory. You do that by typing “cd C:\Users\Maxim\Desktop\Databases”.

[Image: 65h1VyP.png]

Now to use Sift-tool you enter a new command:

Code 
sift hacker

Where “hacker” is the user you want to look up. Sift tool will scan through your databases for all users with the name “hacker” or where “hacker” is used pretty much anywhere.

Colored logs

Now, what would be cool to have? You guessed it right, colors. Head over to ANSICON and click the “ANSICON v1.66” or whatever version is the latest. Download it and extract it to a folder on your desktop. Head back to your Command Prompt and change your directory to the Ansicon folder on your desktop. Make sure it sets to either x64 or x86 depending on what you have. You can use the same method as we did before. Open up file explorer and copy the URL. Mine in this case is:

Code 
C:\Users\Maxim\Desktop\Ansicon\x64

Now you want to install Ansicon and you do that by running aniscon.exe in your Command Prompt by using:

Code 
ansicon.exe -i

Change back your directory to the database folder. Just like we did earlier. Then type in the command:

Code 
sift -ria --color --err-skip-line-length --stats --write-config

Try running the same Sift command as we did earlier. “Sift hacker”, this time, we will have colors. As you can see, it highlights the database name and the keyword that we entered, which was “hacker”. If you want to learn more about Sift commands, click here.

Using name and aliases

Obviously having the name can be very useful if you know how to proceed correctly with it. There are different sites for each country, I have provided lists on the penultimate post. If you are looking to search using the name from a particular country, try to Google and see if you can find one, otherwise, just private message me and I will see if I have one. With the help of their name, you can get information such as relatives, address, phone number, zip code and so on. Here are name searching sites for a few countries:

  1. Pipl (US and more)
  2. Canada411 (Canada)
  3. PeekYou (UK)
  4. Ratsit (Sweden)
  5. Dgs (Denmark)
  6. Find-Person-Germany (Germany)

Finding Social Media Accounts

Finding social medias accounts might not always be the most obvious thing. Your first thoughts might be to simply search their name in the search field of etcetera Facebook or Twitter, but you may get too many results to be able to find which is the one you are looking for. So it is better to go by their email as it can only give a correct result. You can use the following:

  1. Pipl allows you to search by using their email, name, username or phone and optional by using their location. This one is my personal favorite for when it comes to finding Google Plus and Facebook accounts.
  2. Namechk only allows you to search using their username but it can still be very useful because it has more sites and because it is very easy to locate around to quickly find what you are looking for.
  3. Lullar only allows you to search by using either email or real name. It basically provides links that will do the searching for you, personally, I do not find this site very efficient.
  4. ThatsThem is another user friendly site but still not the top choice as its results are always too few when there's more to find. You can search by using their real name and optional by adding street, city, state or Zip code.
  5. Addresssearch is an absolute go-to site if your search is within the United States as it displays searches well. Search by using their real name and state and you will get the result of each person and their email(s). You can also reverse search for an e-mail address.

Using phone number

If you know where to search for who, you are able to get name, address, state and such from just a phone number. Just like we did with names above, you need a specific site for each country, you can use whitepages for US search,Canada411 for Canada search, goyellow for German people. If you need to find for a specific country, simply Google for etcetera "Brazil phone number search".

Zip Code Doxing

A Zip code can give you a general location, it might not be the most useful doxing part ever, but if you have multiple data about something, you can rule out some of them with the help of the location. For US searches you can use unitedstateszipcodes where you simply enter the Zip Code that you want to look up and it will return your city, state, county, area code, timezone and such. As I said, it is not the most useful thing ever, but on some occasions, it will serve you well.

Using images

So using images when doxing is just like searching the web, but instead of searching with a text you are searching with images. If your target is using the same image on an online forum as on Facebook you should be able to find his or hers other accounts. You can use TinEye or Google Images for searching with images to find connections or to use text to find images. In our case, we will most likely want to search with images for connections to other images in hope of finding the same image on another site. Simply drag and drop the image and look at the result. You can of course also right-click an image and click "Google Search This Image" which should give you the same result as Google Images. You can also use EXIF data which is explained on exifdata.com:

Quote:EXIF is short for Exchangeable Image File, a format that is a standard for storing interchange information in digital photography image files using JPEG compression. Almost all new digital cameras use the EXIF annotation, storing information on the image such as shutter speed, exposure compensation, F number, what metering system was used, if a flash was used, ISO number, date and time the image was taken, white balance, auxiliary lenses that were used and resolution. Some images may even store GPS information so you can easily see where the images were taken!

EXIFdata.com is an online application that lets you take a deeper look at your favorite images!

Using a website

If your target has a website and has not protected it well or used any fake information when signing up, chances are that you will be walking away with a lot of information. You can use a site such as whois.domaintools or who.godaddy where you simply enter the domain you would like to look-up and you get the information of it if it is not private. I used Facebook's domain for this tutorial, and this is what i got:

Quote:Registry Registrant ID:
Registrant Name: Domain Administrator
Registrant Organization: Facebook, Inc.
Registrant Street: 1601 Willow Road,
Registrant City: Menlo Park
Registrant State/Province: CA
Registrant Postal Code: 94025
Registrant Country: US
Registrant Phone: +1.6505434800
Registrant Phone Ext:
Registrant Fax: +1.6505434800
Registrant Fax Ext:

Steam Doxing

Steam doxing isn't the easiest but it is possible. First of all, you can check for links on their profile page. But the main thing when doxing on Steam is about looking for records if they have ever been banned from a gaming community or such. If they are playing Counter-Strike for example and have ever been banned, you should be able to find it by searching their username or steam ID. Another thing you can do is to social engineer them, but won't be explaining that any further.

Using Tools

  • Dox Tool:
    Drizzy released a tool that i found to be helpful at times. You can find it here. The program lets you do person search, email search, username search and it has a ip tracker and dox export. I personally only use the tool for it's username search. If you are trying to find information about a particular user, can be a HF user, Steam user or whatever and he or she has a unique name, then this tool can be very useful and save you time.
  • IP logger:
    First of all, when using any sort of IP logger you will want to hide the URL by using a URL shortener. Here are a few examples: Bitly, Goo.gl and Ow.ly. IP loggers are pretty straight forward, you can use whatstheirip where you enter your email, and get your unique link that you will send to your target, but remember to hide it first using a URL shortener. Basically that will give you the IP of your target, this can be very useful if you do not have much to go on.
Database lookup

 

Click here to send me a private message and to request a database lookup.
I will not be sending any passwords, however. Limit your amount of searches (emails, IP's, usernames..) to four.

 
De-tracing means that you are removing information and tracts about someone from the internet. It always comes down to using a method to remove your information. These days you have all sorts of social media accounts, forum accounts, site registers, emails, and platforms that can be useful for anyone attempting to dox you. Basically if you search your real name in a search engine your ultimate goal is to have as few links connected to you as possible, same goes for online aliases. ๖ۣۜCσмρℓεxιтү helped me tremendously with this part of the tutorial.

Using Google

There is a tool that Google provides which will remove Outdated content from Google and all cached result and snippet will be removed. Note that this will not work on every link you request to have removed, there must be a reason, outdated content.  You can do that here But what if you want to remove “personal information or content with legal issues” as Google describes it, they offer to do it here. It is a longer process but it works most of the times.

You can request to have removed content from any of the following services (Click to View)

View (Click to View)

Doxing yourself

The best step when it comes to de-tracing is to attempt to dox yourself with the methods above, see what you can find, you can start by looking at your Skype, enter the following string:

Quote:Skype: username

This will find any posts or such where you have written for example "Add my Skype: username". Then if you have any posts that are on Hack Forums, you can delete those posts etcetera. If you do not have access to deleting the posts, try looking into upgrading. But my point is that you will want to put yourself in the seat of someone attempting to dox you. You want to remove every trace that could help them.

Removing past identities and aliases

Removing your past accounts is vital to staying off the Radar, I would remove anything
that contains your real name and real information here are some links to help you remove
your accounts

Removing from Google cache

Now although you have deleted your twitter, Skype, Myspace ect They can be found in google caches, this is the same with a lot of sites to be honest, I will be going over a known but still working method for removing yourself from Google Cache.

  1. Click here
  2. Go down to “What do you want to do?” press which one you need.
    You have the option of:
  • Remove information you see in Google Search
  • Prevent information from showing in Google Search

Click on the one you want, then click the type of removal you need, you will come to a question like “Have you contacted the site’s webmaster?” I normally choose the one about removing data under the European data protection act.
Then it should bring you to a page, select what type of information you need removing and follow the questions it normally takes around 3-5 Business days depending to remove your requested information.

Removing from lookup sites

There are so many websites that show if you have been breached on any websites and they allow premium users to view this information like emails, addresses, relatives, criminal records, online accounts. I will show you some
methods to remove some of your information as I said I am not going In depth with detracing.

  • LeakBase [Opt Out] click on begin removal process enter your email if its your
    email that has been leaked on here otherwise enter your name or IP. They will send a confirmation to your email and wallah done and dusted.
  • Spokeo[Opt Out] First find your information and copy the URL then click on the hyperlink above and paste the URL in the first box then enter your email address they will send you an email for confirmation then wallah.
  • Peekyou [Opt Out] Self explanatory fill out the form.
  • Pipl[Email] Send an email to [email protected] about requesting information deletion.
  • ThatsThem[Annoying Form] Self Explanatory

Checking breaches

Use the following sites below to see if any of your information has been breached, the way this happens is when someone hacks a website 9/10 they are likely to produce a database dump, 100s are dumped every week so I would keep up to date with this you can use the following sites for checking this.

  • LeakBase - Database Search, Searches over 1 million databases, just input your name, email, IP or phone number to check if any of your information has been breached on any websites.

     

  • HaveiBeenPwned - Enter your username or email address.
    If you have been breached I would change your password immediately or just delete that email and start fresh and avoid those sites although you can't exactly predict when a database is gonna be dumped but better to be safe than sorry.

Removing a Dox

Doxes which are posted on sites such a pastebin can be removed with ease. It is all about what you type when reporting the dox. When it comes to pastebin, you can remove your dox by first of all go to the dox, then click at the "Report abuse" button and file the complaint. It usually takes 3-5 business days in order to get a reply or to have it removed. When filing your complaint, you need to express your concerns and act like people are harassing you. You can type something like this:

Quote:"Hello, there is a pastebin with sensitive and private information on me. I have had people who have been harassing me for days now and people are treating me now when they have my private information. Please remove this from your site, I can't use the internet properly when this is public."

Faking a dox

In order to mislead people who are trying to gather information about you, you can create a fake dox. First of all, head over to fakenamegenerator and make a fake identity. Then you want to post it as you normally would with a dox, but still have some information about yourself such as your most used email and aliases. Maybe include an old Skype to mislead even more.

Virtual Private Network
If you are not already using a VPN you should consider using one as it is easy to use and it can be cheap as well. A VPN gives you more control over your privacy, which is a basic human right. It not only hides your internet activity from ISP but also allows you to use public WI-FI without risks. Not only that, it also stops Google from tracking you. Google stores everything, movement, activity, download, etc. Privacy is after all your right and a VPN is, unfortunately, a need. Listen to what other users has to say about VPNs that they use, most important is to use a VPN that does not keep logs. You can look in the VPN Hosting and Services section here on Hack Forums if you find one that fits you. Make sure to read up on it before your purchase. However, my personal recommendation is to use Mullvad. It is ran by a Swedish company and they do not keep logs. They accept Bitcoin, PayPal, Swish, Bank transfer, Bankgiro and they even accept cash to be sent. They have servers in Sweden, and 34 other locations. This is my definitive go-to when it comes to virtual private network. Something that i especially like about them is that they have an auto-connect feature, so that you do not have to bother with connecting yourself everytime you turn on your PC. This is taken from Mullvad's site:

 

Quote:Stay secure on public WiFi
Connecting to WiFi at a cafe, hotel, airport, or any other open network means you are at risk for being hacked or tracked. Protect your web browsing with Mullvad in which traffic to and from your computer is encrypted to the highest standards.

Protect against mass surveillance
Worried about your online activity being scrutinized? Mullvad protects your internet traffic from eavesdropping.

Keep your privacy
Your IP address is hidden and replaced by one of ours, ensuring that your activity and location are not linked to you.

Anonymous account
A Mullvad account can be created without supplying any personal information – not even an email address. We keep no activity logs and encourage anonymous payments with Bitcoin or cash. Communicate privately with us by using our public PGP key for encrypted email.

Keeping you safe during disconnections
With Mullvad, all Internet traffic is blocked upon VPN connection failure. This ensures your real IP address from accidentally being revealed while the Mullvad client automatically attempts to reconnect. This kill functionality is an option available in settings "block the Internet on connection failure".

No logging and no tracking on our homepage
We don't log traffic on our website and refrain from sending usage statistics to external parties. Our website uses only two cookies: one that keeps you logged in to your account and one that remembers your language preference.

Web Browser Choice

The go-to browser when it comes to helping you staying anonymous online is Tor Browser without a doubt.  

Quote:The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked.

Tor Browser lets you use Tor on Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux without needing to install any software. It can run off a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured web browser to protect your anonymity, and is self-contained (portable).

There are two right away that I can recommend which are Protonmail and Tutanota where both are excellent for security and privacy. Both offers encryption of course.

Quote:Automatic Email Security
All emails are secured automatically with end-to-end encryption. This means even we cannot decrypt and read your emails. As a result, your encrypted emails cannot be shared with third parties.
Anonymous Email

Protect Your Privacy
No personal information is required to create your secure email account. By default, we do not keep any IP logs which can be linked to your anonymous email account. Your privacy comes first.

Messaging Options

To start off, do not use Skype without a VPN. Skype resolvers are back (as of 03/00/2017). These are confirmed to be working: Skypegrab.net & Skyperesolver.net, and they also store the IP of the lookup in a database, the only requirement is that the Skype user is online. If you have been using your Skype without a VPN, I suggest you to junk that one and make a new, and this time use a VPN.

If you rather feel like junking Skype entirely and use a more secure messaging option you can go for TorChat which is encrypted.

Quote:TorChat is a peer to peer instant messenger with a completely decentralized design, built on top of Tor's location hidden services, giving you extremely strong anonymity while being very easy to use without the need to install or configure anything.

TorChat just runs from a USB drive on any Windows PC. (It can run on Linux and Mac too, in fact, it was developed on Linux with cross platform usability in mind from the very first moment on, but the installation on other platforms than Windows is a bit more complicated at the moment)

All TorChat traffic is encrypted end-to-end.

There are some misunderstandings floating around regarding Tor and encryption. Whenever I mention Tor and encryption in the same sentence the immediate reflex response of many people is: "But Tor provides no encryption!" This statement is true for most applications but not for all. The most commonly known usage of Tor is to use it as an anonymizer for traffic between the anonymous user and a publicly available service in the Internet and while the traffic will travel encrypted through the Tor network it MUST at some point leave the Tor network and enter the unencrypted internet to reach its final destination. This is the origin of the above mentioned "Tor provides no encryption" and it is undoubtedly true for this most widely known and practiced application of Tor and users should understand it.

Payment Options

Obviously, PayPal is a big no-no here as it displays your name and email when sending and receiving a payment. Using cryptocurrency is a much better option and especially if you go with Bitcoin as it is very popular. With Bitcoin you do not have to provide any personal information such as your address, name, number, street name. You can read this article on how to stay anonymously with Bitcoin.
