Hire a Hacker – Scam Services

Hackers for Hire might not be the hackers you think they are and can be ‘con artists’ or scammers. A recent research published by Google in collaboration with University of California. The 11 page research might interest you aswell , which you may read or continue reading the article where I have taken out the interesting aspects for your consumption :

Research : Hack for Hire – Exploring the Emerging Market for Account Hijacking

Research Focus – Hire a Hacker

The researchers were interested in black market services where you hire self proclaimed hackers to get you access of accounts where you lack the capability of doing the same or maybe lack the moral courage of doing something illegal but comfortable of giving someone else the same task.
Hackers for hire need to give in alot of time and effort to execute a tailored attack which can be spearphishing or whaling. Social Engineering is the most successful nowadays and the most difficult hack to execute.

Fake Email sent to Hack Gmail Account
Hackers for Hire sent out a Fake Email to reset the password
Price to hack various Email Services

Monthly price that Service A charges across email and social network account providers. Over two years, the price per Gmail account increased from $123 to $384

That kind of thing takes effort. Most hackers for hire aren’t up to the task, to say the least. Many were outright scams – not too surprising and some wouldn’t even take on the job if it involved attacking Gmail.
For those services that did agree to take on the challenge of hacking Gmail accounts, the cost climbed over the course of two years, from $123 to $384 – with a peak of $461 in February 2018.
Prices for hacking Yahoo have been the same as Google, while Facebook and Instagram hacking fee have actually fallen to the current average of $307.

Hackers Price Pattern

Price differences for hacking various email providers and the change in pricing are likely driven by operational and economic factors: Google and Yahoo have gotten better at protecting email accounts, while prices have increased as the market for a specific service shrinks

Prices will naturally increase as the market for a specific service shrinks (reducing the ability to amortize sunk costs on back-end infrastructure for evading platform defenses) and also as specific services introduce more, or more effective, protection mechanisms that need to be bypassed (increasing the transactional cost for each hacking attempt).

– Excerpt taken from Hackers for Hire Research

Hackers for Hire are Frauds

The research proved it out by setting up bogus online buyer personas with which to approach 27 hacking-for-hire services. The researchers tasked those services with compromising particular victim accounts.

Those supposed “victims” were actually honeypot Gmail accounts operated in coordination with Google.

Only five of the services they contacted delivered on their promise to attack the supposed victims. The rest were scammers, demurred when it came to attacking Gmail accounts, or had lousy customer service, as stated in the research article:

Just five of the services we contacted delivered on their promise to attack our victim personas. The others declined, saying they could not cover Gmail, or were outright scams. We frequently encountered poor customer service, slow responses, and inaccurate advertisements for pricing.

Conclusion

Hacker for Hire might not be that big of a threat which we all feared. Internet is filled with reports stating that Dark Net is filled with hackers who would hack any account for you if you pay them. In the research they conducted only 11 services even “tried” to check the account required to be hacked while 5 among the 11 succeeded , rest 17 didn’t even bother to do anything. Very neatly summed up in the research :

We surmise from our findings, including evidence about the volume of real targets, that the commercial account hijacking market remains quite small and niche. With prices commonly in excess of $300, it does not yet threaten to make targeted attacks a mass market threat.

Have you ever had the need to hire a hacker ? or experienced a hack of your account ?

  • Greyhatzhackers(gmail) are the same guys I worked with in the past months . I found them from this comment session and the reviews made me hire them. I was scammed once before I found these reviews . I now believe in hackers .

  • All the reviews here about same group of hackers can not be fake, I think most of the comments about be scam are fake from rival group. I made my research before hiring Greyhatzhackers ( gmail) and so far I have found lots of great reviews about them and the reviews I found here made me go into hire with them and so far I cant complain because they handled a successful phone hack for me . My advice is first give them before believing what you see.

  • I also reside in UAE my friend and I decided to hire the Greyhatzhackers(gmail) because of your reviews here . Salam my friend thank you for sharing as they also did a phone hack for me . They said it will take 8 hours but it ended up fragging to 12 hours . Good guys indeed.

  • Please if you want to hire a hacker, I device you not to use hireahacker .com, they are not legit . They will waste your time with replies, they don’t even know hacking terms. If you need a hacker, always make sure you asked them questions deeply to hear the terms they use. For phone hack, I advice you use Greyhatzhackers(gmail). They know exactly what they are doing, great services too and that was the first time I learnt about SS7 handling for phone hacks. But way expensive then usual. They reviews I saw here made me hire them.

  • Hi. Hope you are well. I saw your comment here and wanted to hire the Greyhatzhackers. Can you be kind and share the code word with me please?

  • Greyhatzhackers (gmail) from the posts I found here got a phone hack for you without any form of upfront . I never believed in hacking until I came across this post. only 9 hours for an android phone hack . High recommend you make research before ever hiring a hacker .

  • Greyhatzhackers accepted my project, asked me to pay a fixed rate upfront due to the nature of the task and promised me a 14h completion. However, it has been dragging for 1.5 months and still hanging. Along the way, they kept asking for extra payments and also tried to persuade me to do Bitcoin mining. I rejected the mining and stated I would just stick to my original project. They went for the Bitcoin mining anyway and combined my project in it, I therefore have no choice but paying for the mining too. The price/charges I have paid them till now is already 26 times more than the original fixed rate they told me. And after I finally cleared all the payments they required, now they stop replying to me. The programmer even swore heavily on his kids’ lives to complete my project. However, my project was not fixed and they took all my money. Left me in despair.

    I have everything I say with proves. I also read a lot of good comments about them online, that’s why I approached them. But they scam me big time. Took money but no work done. If Greyhatzhackers reply to me and deliver my project at the end, I would come here again and correct my comments. But so far, took money, no work done, no refund. Totally a scam.

  • DO NOT TRUST Greyhatzhackers.

    Since my last post, it’s been almost a month. After I made all the payments they requested me to, they became silent and barely reply to me anymore. Their programmer promised and swore heavily to deliver, but never put his words into actions. Left me in despair. I have been calling, texting, emails them. They gave me all the excuses and just kept delaying. I have everything I say here with proves. If anyone needs more information or clarification, feel free to leave me comments or contacts here.

    They are supposed to do programming, but so far all they have done to me are just LYING and SCAMMING! If they ever fulfill their promises to me and deliver my project at the end, I’ll come here with updates. But so far, I would suggest DO NOT TRUST Greyhatzhackers.

  • […] Black Hat Hackers : These are criminals who hack for their personal gain, it might be for fame, fun, information, money, data or anything they can find to hack. They go against the law for personal gain. For example: Albert Gonzalez from 2005 to 2007, his cyber group including him had allegedly sold approximately more than 170 million credit cards and ATM numbers. One of the biggest cyber theft in history. You may be interested in reading about the World’s top 10 Black Hat Hackers ?

  • Greyhatzhackers is a SCAM. (I have everything I say with proves)

    The new updates:
    After I paid the final funds to complete my project in November 2020, they claimed they sent the BTC to wrong address by mistake, which would need 12 days for reversal. If not reversed, they would refund me.

    After 12 days, the reversal did not happen, nor the refund. They insisted in me to pay for the same AGAIN and swore to sort out my project this time. I therefore paid again on Dec 6th 2020. They then promised strongly to deliver my project on Dec 10th.

    On Dec 10th, they did not deliver my project and became hardly replying to me. But whenever they did reply, they confirmed the job was done, everything was under control, they are ready to send me samples, asked me to relax and just trusted them. Throughout whole December, they said it was just delayed because 1) a bit personal issue, 2) it was weekend, 3) moving location, 4) festive season, 5) their family emergency, with all kinds of excuses.

    In Jan 2021, they told me they are finally fully back to work and ready to finalize with me. BUT they wanted me to pay the final funds AGAIN for 3rd time, because they actually did not process the work on Dec 10th as they claimed. They even apologized and admitted it’s their fault that they took my money and didn’t process the work. However, they still wanted me to pay. Which is completely ridiculous, unreasonable and irresponsible.

    Greyhatzhackers took money without doing the work; they promised to refund which they never did; they lied about the work was done; even they admitted it’s their fault, they still don’t want to take responsibility for fixing the mistake and just keep asking for more money.

    DO NOT TRUST Greyhatzhackers. They are liars and they don’t care if I’m in dire emergency due to their endless dragging and delays. If they ever reply to me, take responsibility to fix their mistakes and finally deliver my project, I’ll come back here to update and correct my statements.
