concerns

Since October of last year, people have been questioning the whereabouts of one of the dark web’s famous vendors, UKWhite. UKWhite has been vending on the dark web since 2013, and boasts over 30,000 total sales. The anonymous dark web trader has traded on at least 20 markets on the dark web since 2013. He’s actually a legend who has been here almost ever since the game began. His famous listings are MDMA, Cocaine and Ketamine. 

Having traded on over 20 marketplaces, UKWhite is without doubt a famous personality in the dark web scene. So when he went missing, people were concerned as he’s one of the most trusted dealers. Now, most players will probably not like the recent development with regards to his whereabouts. The recent information reaching this publication is that UKWhite was arrested in October 2021 and is no longer a free man. According to court documents, the famous trader was arrested back in October of 2021 in Madrid, Spain. 

The released court documents allege that the vendor was arrested on 22nd of October 2021 at the Barcelona airport after which the authorities went ahead and seized his properties. The properties were seized two days after the arrest, that’s on date 25. Recovered during the seizure were a house and an industrial unit owned by the dark web maestro.

Concerns As Famous Dark Web Vendor UKWhite Goes Missing

On 29/11/2021, the US Embassy in Spain sent an extradition request to have UKWhite face charges in the United States. They sent legal documents, including a copy of the formal accusation by a District of Columbia court dated 25/05/2021. Others were an arrest warrant by the same court from 13/08/2021, and several profile pictures from the suspect’s accounts in Wirex, Xapo.com and Binance.

UKWhite was then taken to court on 2022/01/21. He identified himself as the claimed person, but denied all the charges and doesn’t agree with the extradition. His hearing trial started on 2022/04/19 where the DEA accused him of introducing more than 5kg of cocaine into the US, while operating the UKWhite account. The extradition request to the US was granted on 2022/04/20.

Charges

The authorities are accusing UKWhite of drug trafficking and money laundering on AlphaBay Marketplace. According to court documents, he allegedlly led a drug trafficking and money laundering organization between 2013 and 2021. He was known in the dark web for selling Colombian and Bolivian Coke. UKWhite had a very big customer base and so news of his disappearance disturbed many. In exchange of the drugs, he got Bitcoin and Monero which he later laundered. 

In his time in the game, UKWhite sent over 38,000 parcels. Also it’s alleged that he owns almost 800 BTC. The court in UK also noted that despite his arrest, UKWhite is also still active on AlphaBay and several other dark web marketplaces. His customers have also sensed a thing. You see, the guy went silent for some time, but when ‘he’ came back, the quality of his products became different and here’s where hell broke loose. Rumours of his arrest had been allover but his comeback convinced others. But the product’s quality proved otherwise. 

Later last year after his sudden disappearance,  there were concerns on different platforms. While replying to concerns on DarKode Reborn Market, Dark0rde admin leaked that the trader was on vacation. Under the headline, “Where is UKWhite”, a user wrote “Not logged on since 23 Oct and usually super active. Anyone having issues on other markets?” The Dark0rde admin responded “UKWhite contacted the Dark0de Team that he will be on Vacation mode for a few days. All open orders will be fully refunded, no worries.“

Login Activities On Various Dark Web Platforms

As we already said, UKWhite’s account stayed  offline for a few weeks then came back as if nothing had happened. But soon after his return, buyers started having strange feelings that something was a miss. Complaints started flowing in shortly and most people expressed disappointment with the vendor’s products. A user posted on Monopoly Market’s sub “Do not order from UKWHITE. Before he had good quality, then he mysteriously disappeared and is now back with slashed prices, apart from 0.5g and 1g. Theres a reason for this – its fucking shite subpar gear. Stings like fuck and blocks your nose, great. Clearly something happened with his source and he can’t get the same shit so tried to reduce his prices to reflect it but its not worth it. Look elsewhere for premium.“

That was just the start. Ever since, complaints have become too frequent that some market administrators decided to suspend the vendor from their marketplaces. Monopoly Market  administrator decided to do a complete rundown on the account and its activities. And he confirmed the account is being run by a different individual. And it’s this new owner of ‘UKWhite’ who is selling completely different products. This means that the account might have been taken over by a friend, family member, or a former trade partner. 

This Is What He Had To Say; 

Prior to this date the vendor had vanished for a good 2 weeks, so the end of October and start of November this vendor was MIA. This vendor is an established vendor with DD permissions. His reason for going MIA was “OPSEC related”, not too sure why you would have to vanish for 2 weeks and then return if it was OPSEC based, as a market admin it’s not something we are going to ask too much because it makes us look suspect. 

I would like to note over the past 3 years I have seen/heard some of the funniest shit people do under the guise of OPSEC, it’s kind of like a simple go to excuse. Why did you do that?… OPSEC! Like a get out of explanation free card. Some examples of this would be; “Vendor, why do you have 10 different PGP keys?”… OPSEC! Always makes me laugh when they link each and every one of those keys together by using the same vendor name.

Return To The Dark Web Scene

11/15/2021 – Vendor returned, he had a bunch of disputes/pending refunds.

11/16/2021 – Started sending refunds to clear outstanding issues, it became clear the person behind the screen was new to the vendor panel because he was marking orders as refunded but wasn’t actually sending the refunds (he is a DD vendor, he needs to mark as refunded, then physically send the refund as he is a DD vendor). The person behind the screen assumed clicking “refund” meant the orders were being refunded. 

A clear sign the person in control has no idea how the market works because the real UKWhite had been vending for a good portion of time, he has sent refunds before, he KNOWS how the market works, this new guy, does not and if it was an “employee” of UKWhite I am pretty sure UKWhite would have educated him on how things work, if he did not educate him then that goes to show the incompetence of UKWhite which produces the same outcome.

11/17/2021 – Claimed he had sent refunds but did not, the reason for this was explained above. To be clear, the vendor did in the end send/resolve all outstanding issues. We then made the decision to take his DD perms away and force him to use escrow for a few weeks while we saw he had gotten back to normal. He did try and fight this, he put us in an ultimatum as vendors usually do when we remove DD perms, he caved in the end and agreed to use escrow. This decision was IMO 100% justified considering he had vanished for weeks and then blamed it on an OPSEC issue

PGP KEY

11/29/21 – Requested for us to change his PGP key, this right here was the second red flag. Claims he had lost his USB key, but if he had lost his USB key how the fuck can he login? 2FA is required to login, usernames are required, unique links are required, passwords are required. If he has lost his USB key containing all of this data how has he logged in? The only explanation is he has backups and the USB key he lost was not encrypted which contained sensitive files. 

If this is the case, more incompetence is showing, this is an incompetent vendor that cannot be trusted to vend never mind have direct deal permissions. This is not me insulting him, this is simply my observations as an admin, it’s my job. You ever wonder how people get caught, these are the kinds of people that you’re dealing with. Not that we/I am perfect, but I am just saying… Low hanging fruit almost 99% of the time in terms of busts, this is the shit I am talking about.

12/15/21 – Asks us a question in relation to how our vendor panel works, a question the real UKWhite would already know the answer to considering he has been vending for a long time.

More Suspicion

This post right here stating quality has changed really screams to me, UKWhite IS NOT actually UKWhite but;

– Account has been sold.

– Account has been passed down.

– Feds.

It’s starting to become clear that it’s easier to just remove/ban these problems that cannot keep their shit together and accept new vendors. It’s always something, everyday some low IQ brainlet has to cause problems, relying on humans is not an easy task. It has to be zero tolerance from here onward because we do not deal with idiots, illegal drug markets are not compatible with idiots. End of story, if that offends you, you are the idiot I am referring to.

Edit: I know the original poster is legitimate because he makes a comment about lowering prices, a shill would not have noticed that IMO. This guy is 100% a regular for him to notice the price changes hence why I have taken his claims seriously, I do feel there is validity to them. I have been watching this vendor for a couple of weeks now and it doesn’t add up to me. The vendor has been made aware of this thread, let’s see if he responds.

Our Final Word

At the moment, not much is known about the former dark web master. But the court documents revealed that he’s yet to be extradited to the US. He’s only waiting for the process of his extradition to be completed. But this publication promises to keep you updated on anything else that might arise.
