While the deep web is famous for the availability of all sorts of illicit goods such as guns, drugs, counterfeit products and so on, you will be amazed to find that there are hundreds if not thousands of people offering hitmen-for-hire services. As the title suggests, these are people with real guns and ready to execute targets for money. The recent closure of Silk Road and Alphabay laid bare the kind of activities taking place in the deep web. Keep reading to know how realistic hitmen-for-hire services can be.
As a disclaimer, this article is for informational purposes only and does not, in any way, seek to promote hiring of hitmen to kill people. Walking across the dark alleys in the streets, you will find people selling drugs, and gang members offering to kill for money. But due to the sensitivity of the matter, not everyone will go out advertising for a job in killing another person. After all, nobody wants to be associated with murder, regardless of whether they authorized the killing. In search for anonymity, people seeking to hire hitmen are finding an easy route in the deep web. There is full anonymity since no personal details are shared with the hitman. Once registered on any of these sites, the customer only needs to provide the identification details of the target and leave the hitman to do the job.
And the cost is not that high, averaging between $5000 and $20,000 for killing an ordinary person. According to the site administrators, there are hitmen ready to get rid of that nagging ex-wife, rogue manager, unforgiving judge, or the naughty prosecutor. The list goes on and on. In fact, celebrities, top managers, and government officials are not spared either. For just $20,000, you can get a professional hitman to kill the person. Professional here means ex-military personnel with sniper rifles. You can even describe how you want the mission executed, from forced accidents, fatal shots in the streets, poisoning, and so on.
The story depicts the picture of a rotten society, with people seeking to kill and get away with it. The availability of trigger-happy criminals and websites minting millions of money per year have taken well-crafted murders and assassinations a notch higher. All this has been aided by an unresponsive law enforcement agency that simply rubs off these claims as malicious and untrue. However, the recent rise in the number of unexplained murders points to a real picture of legit hitmen ready to shoot at will. It is high time the FBI investigated the administrators of these sites and put them in jail before the next person succumbs to a hitman’s bullet.
