CULVER CITY, Calif., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ —


          The Black Market Experience is a rare opportunity for consumers to
          learn about the stark realities of cybercrime. The exhibit, set
          inside a fully converted semi truck, gives guests a glimpse into
          how the Internet "bad guys" virtually break into people's
          computers and online accounts to steal, sell and trade identities
          from everyday people - and how they're making millions doing so.
          This fully interactive tour will expose the following elements of
    WHAT: cybercrime:

  • The Methods: How cybercriminals operate and propagate their stolen goods through purpose-built online scams.
  • The Goods: Everyday examples of the items that are for sale on the Internet black market, bringing this secret online marketplace to life inside a tangible, physical space.
  • The Faces: Real profiles of online thieves, as well as true stories from actual victims of cybercrime.
