Operation Open Market

The public is reminded that an indictment contains only charges and is not evidence of guilt. The defendants are presumed innocent and are entitled to a fair trial at which the government has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Since on or about November 22, 2005, the organization, a transnational criminal organization, has been engaged in large scale trafficking of compromised credit card account data and counterfeit instruments, such as counterfeit identification documents and counterfeit credit cards, as well as various types of computer crimes, including intrusion and hacking. In March 2012, the U.S. Secret Service and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations arrested more than 19 members in “Operation Open Market,” an investigation into the organization, which operated principally out of Las Vegas and elsewhere.
