Treasury Dept: Tor a Big Source of Bank Fraud

A new report from the U.S. Treasury Department claims that Tor is a "big source of bank fraud." If you use Tor, chances are you are a crook! You use Tor and BitTorrent? There's already a warrant out for your arrest. wink

In the report, released on Dec. 2, 2014, FinCEN said it examined some 6,048 suspicious activity reports (SARs) filed by banks between August 2001 and July 2014, searching the reports for those involving one of more than 6,000 known Tor network nodes. Investigators found 975 hits corresponding to reports totaling nearly $24 million in likely fraudulent activity.
