One wouldn’t normally associate darknet usage with strengthening family ties. For a team of two US-based drug dealers, that situation is a bit different. This father-son team successfully sold drugs over the darknet for an extended period of time. Both family members will now serve five years in federal prison for their misconduct.
As more and more people try to score some quick money, illegal and criminal operations become all the more important. This is part of what makes the darknet so appealing to those who want to make some money through less than normal means. For the father-son darknet drug dealer team active on AlphaBay before it was shut down in June 2017, their reign has come to an abrupt end.
