Basically, the scam works like this: The botmaster acquires some freeware utility or legitimate program, renames it, claims it as his own and places it up for sale at one of several pre-selected software sales and distribution platforms, including ClickBank, FastSpring, eSellerate, SetSystems, or Shareit. The botmaster then logs in to his SpyEye control panel picture above, feeds it a list of credit card numbers and corresponding cardholder data, after which SpyEye opens an Internet Explorer Window and — at user-defined intervals — starts auto-filling the proper fields at the botmaster’s online store and making purchases.

  1. I think I'd like to do a scrappy tumbler quilt, and the 3-1/2 inch die would be the perfect size. I can3#&9;t imagine cutting those pieces by hand. Thanks for the giveaway. Kathie L in Allentown
