Working with american agencies like the FBI, the SOCA says to media that this development is the culmination of more than two years of investigative work.

Not to be outdone, SOCA also confirmed it has arrested two British men who were caught making purchases of credit card data on these sites.

The arrested, one in Stanford and one in Tottenham, London  were caught making large scale purchases, bulk buying card details, presumably with the intention to commit fraud, accordingly to SOCA sources.

SOCA has been able to recover the details of more than two-and-a-half million credit cards, preventing potential fraud.
