Sicilian Hitmen: The Latest Hitman-for-Hire Scam to Emerge on the Dark Web

Updated on:
Scam on the background of one hundred dollar bills
A new hitman scam site has surfaced on the dark web. It has all the features synonymous with previous scams and promises similar devious services.

A new hitman-for-hire scam site has sprung up on the dark web—Sicilian Hitmen. Based on the features of the new site, it is evident that it has been created by the same developers of former hitman-for-hire platforms Besa Mafia and Crime Bay By the Chechen Mob.

The site offers contracted murder services and lives up to the reputation of scamming people on the dark web, gained by its predecessors.

Just like Besa Mafia, which burst into the dark web last year, Sicilian Hitmen comes with a well-organized and appealing website.

It purportedly offers several services, payable by Bitcoin, to unleash various levels of violence, conduct acid attacks and carry out murders on behalf of clients.

It is common knowledge that there are a lot of illegal activities carried out in the dark web. However, hitman-for-hire services is definitely not one of them, and any site purporting to be offering such is services is most likely a scam.

Users on Reddit are already expressing their thoughts and concerns about the new site.

Sicilian Hitmen Scam Site Prone to Hacking

Considering the similarity between the Sicilian Hitmen website and that of Besa Mafia and Crime Bay By the Chechen Mob, it is safe to bet that Sicilian Hitmen will not go far before it is hacked and exposed as a scam.

The hacking of Besa Mafia was made public after researchers at Risk-Based Security reported it in a blog post in 2016. In the report, they indicated that such data breaches occur more often than they are reported.

This backs the reason to expect Sicilian Hitmen will be breached soon.

It would be interesting to understand what sort of defense mechanisms the admins have employed this time around as hackers are probably itching to get into the database of the Sicilian Hitmen scam site.

Scam Site Strategies

The scam site goes out in full force to market and popularize their fake services. It engages in various social platforms in the dark web with pseudo accounts to try and convince unsuspecting users that they can conduct hits on their behalf.

Alarms about the site have already been sounded across the dark web for users to be wary of such scams.

Fraud Scam Phishing Caution Deception Concept
Stab6 notes that the existence of these hitman scam sites is encouraged by the high prevalence of people falling for the scam.

A user on Reddit named stab6 has posted about it and warned dark web users about falling for these scams. The user also advised against sending any sort of payment to this site.

The comments below stab6’s post indicate that the darknet community shares a general disapproval of ordering a hit on someone regardless of whatever disagreements one might have with them.

Most users feel that there are more amicable ways of solving disagreements than ordering someone to be murdered. Regardless, these types of sites usually fail to fulfill their agreement to would-be clients after a payment is made.

Some Reddit commenters also shared their past experiences on similar sites. They are asked to pay an upfront fee for the hit to be conducted, then after some time, the scammer sends several expertly-crafted excuses and asks for more payments to cover expenses.

The site pushes this strategy as far as they can to make sure they get as many payments as possible, but the said services are never delivered.

Stab6 notes that the existence of these hitman scam sites is encouraged by the high prevalence of people falling for the scam. Interestingly, in the previous scams by Besa Mafia, it had been noted that some users knew that the site was a scam but they still ordered a hit anyway.

As for what is in store for Sicilian Hitmen, the darknet community and outside observers will have to wait and see. The reincarnation of these hitman scam sites only means that there are dark web users who still fall for the scams being propagated by the site.

The site has a sign-up and login portal for would-be clients to browse the platform and make orders.

    Yes, thank you for helping wannabe murderers being safe from unsecure way of killing.
    I take that you are doing accesorry to murder; you are basically advicing wannabe murderers TO AVOID ALL HITMEN SITES OUT THERE and you probably recommend them to buy a gun and kill the person themselves right?
    Thank you for siding up with murderers and helping them to kill innocent people, by telling them which sites are scam
    I as a morally healty person I would prefer to have all would be murderers be scammed and delayed in their murder plans but I see that you are just a moral full of shit person who helps murderers and doesn’t give a fuck about the innocent people
    However you are just waisting your time reporting sites that you say they are scam if they are really scams they will probably change the name very soon and then go scamming again and then they change again and change again and you are basically fighting a fight that you cant win
    You are just stupid, morally corupt by helping murderers and you are not doing any good if you are trying to expose scam sites, they will always change their name and come up as a new site
    If you have been scammed by one of scam hitmen sites you are just a redard moron who now says about all hitmen sites that they are fake and you think you can do any difference but you can’t.. they are always coming back under different names until you grow tired

    Sicilian Hitmen is not a scam.

    The site can’t be hacked. If it can be hacked, why don’t you hack and close it down?

    Beware of this Bruno guy, is is clearly an undercover cop who is telling lies about dark web sites, including Sicilian Hitmen, with the sole purpose to SCARE PEOPLE AWAY from using it

    PROOF: Sicilian Hitmen usually offers payment for a montly fee to sites to put up an article, neutral articles are fine. Neutral means that the site doesn’t promote nor bad mouth the Sicilian Hitmen; customers can decide and use escrows or pay when the job is done

    However, because Bruno is not accepting a BIG load of cash to remove the negative lying content, it is clear that he is an undercover cop. Cops usually dont accept bribe, except in very rare cases.

    If this article would not be written by a lying cop then he would have accepted the payment and remove the lies

    The sicilian hitmen is in no way linked to other hitmen sites. Just because the site has a dark interface, doesn’t mean is run by the same people who had other sites with dark interfaces

        Plenty of arrests made of people who may have an annoyance from those names the websites have given to the police.
        There has NEVER been any harm to anyone from hitman websites or admin other than to those ordering a hit.
        The websites are all fake traps and inform the FBI of every contact.
        Just look at the layout of the “order form” which defaults to “kill” every time and doesn’t allow cancellation. It is setting people up to be arrested for “soliciting murder” which carries a life sentence in prison as well as taking money from anyone stupid enough to pay into their fake escrow system

    I am Barbosa, I am replying to the message above.

    No, the Sicilian Hitmen is not a scam and I am not saying is a scam by sending that message

    I offered payment to remove this article because the article is fake and a lie!

    I din’t saith the site is scam, I saith many hitmen sites out there are scam, but not Sicilian Hitmen

    By sending that message, I prove several things

    1. The Sicilian Hitmen site can not be hacked! If it could be hacked then why don’t you smart asses hack it?

    2. This article writer is an undercover cop, because any normal person would accept payment to remove it but not an undercover cop

    A normal person would take $5000 or $10 000 in a montly fee to just remove this article, but not an undercover cop

    3. If Sicilian Hitmen would be a scam, then undercover cops would not post articles against it!

    They would just allow people to be scammed

    As Sicilian Hitmen is a real site, undercover cops publish lies to discourage users from using it

    So the reason for why sending the message publicy to offer payment to remove the article was to show that the publisher doesnt want to remove it even for a large payment

    That means one thing, he is undercover cop, because anyone else could be brought

    I din’t offered to pay for a scam, I offered to pay for the right to put up a neutral article

      Hey barbosa,

      Stop bluffing man. Just prove yourself if you are real. Your site came up only after a week when chechen mob was taken down and you don’t have any hitman or customers. This is the fact.

      If you are real, then prove it buddy. So simple.

    You risk being arrested if you access this website – it is certainly a scam and maybe a honeypot to catch unsuspecting web users, who will be arrested as they can track you down, but have never arrested the admin of the websites as they will sell info they collect to the police

          The site is not a scam, that is why they are saying it’s a scam

          If the site would be a scam all undercover cops would say go for it, go and order from that site cause is legit

          So I guess, no one can really know wheter a site is a scam or not from all this fake shit around here, until they order

    • Anonymous

      Yes, is a scam, but if you want to protect the general public YOU SHOULD NOT REPORT KNOWN SCAMS.
      By reporting known scams, you are siding up with murderers and you dont care about victims, you are protecting murderers be safe from scams, that is imoral and wrong.
      Barbosa is doing a good thing, getting rich and saving lives, all respect for him. He is not angered he is just being ironical and saying that you are recommending murderers do the murder themselves, and that is a bad thing.

      But however, I see that this article on dark web news is siding up with murderes. The purpose of this article is NOT to protect innocent life by letting murderers be scammed, instead the purpose of this article is to give tips and advices to murderers on how to stay away from scams in order to do a succesful murder.

      So I will just join the trend here, and this is my ADVICE TO ALL MURDERERS reading this:



      Now, there. I’ve saith it. Congratulations for a great article helping murders. Hoping you are happy as it seems all readers here are on the side of murderers; probably only people looking on how to do succesful murders land here

      • Anonymous

        No, the Sicilian Hitmen site is not a scam.

        If it would be a scam, all editors would allow murderers to be scammed, they would not publish an article about a scam that is a scam; no one wants to help murderers on the clear net

        Note that on clear net, any website helping murderers will get police knowing on the doors of the webmasters and admins.

        So no site on clear net wants to help murderers. No site on clear net truly tells a scam site, because that means they help murderers and police knocks on the doors of admins and owners

        As a rule of thumb, if a site calls something a scam, it probably isn’t. It calls it a scam to discourage murders from using it.

        So your question of why this site admins are helping murderers by telling which sites are scam, the answer is easy: they aren’t. They aren’t helping murderers by telling which site is a scam, they are just discouraging murders from ordering on a real site.

        That’s the purpose of this article, making murderers stay away fom a real site.

      Media and reporters don’t sympathize with murderers, that is why they say it’s a scam when a hitmen site is not a scam, in order to discourage murderers from ordering from a real site and saving victims lives

      If a site is really a scam then media will say is not a scam to encourage murderers to be trapped and waiste their time and hope and save victims lifes

      And there are lots of undercover cops here who do the same, saying about various hitmen sites they are scams, when they in fact are not, just to discourage murderers from ordering from a legit site

      So don’t guide yourself after anonymous claims that the site is a scam or is not a scam, do your own judging take your risks and remember, never provide your name and real info, never provide your ip, and always use digital lockers and escrows to pay the murder after job is done not before

      The other people here hate murderers and are trying to confuse them and discourage them from ordering murder saying all sites are scams.. but if all sites would be scam then all these murder haters who protect public here would say all sites are real just to trap murderers

      So a bit of reverse psihology doesn’t hurt, anyone whos not plain stupid understands

        All hitman sites are there to make money either through the criminal payment system or by selling the details to the police.
        Why risk getting involved in murder, when they can make $millions by scamming and selling/ giving details to police and a few$ for all those who anonymously write postive reviews for them.
        The only people who are identifiable as real people all state that all hitman sites are money making scams, with paid shills writing all the reviews promoting or advertising them on the internet blogs like this

    This is instigation to murder! Don’t use hitmen services. Do your murder directly.

    Or if you use hitmen services, you can pay with stolen credit card info, such as

    Name on card:**********
    Card number ********
    Card type: visa
    CVV2 code: ****
    Expires on: 02/2021

    The Sicilian Hitmen site is a legitimate hitmen for hire site, hundreds of murders have been carried out.

    That’s why law enforcement spent lots of resources to hack it, and they managed to hack it in april 2017 by British NSA and that’s how they got access to some internal messages and orders, however they only got pending orders and as old orders were deleted after completion .

    Only a few people were arrested, those who has been stupid enouch to submit to Crime Bay a picture of the target together with herself, with herself blacked out.

    Also some customer din’t deleted traces from their computer and phone, like visited bitcoin sites, google searches for keywords related on how to do murder and so on

    When police hacked the site and found pending orders, they contacted the targets in the orders and asked them who might want them dead.

    Those targets who had little ennemies, gave clues of who might want them dead, and Police visited those people, and found loads of evidence on their computers, like ‘how to find an assassin’ or similar searches on google, bitcoin visited sites, and same pictures that were submitted on the crime bay site as picture of targets, with some parts removed

    It wasn’t the fault of Crime Bay that sloppy and careless customers have been arrested.

    The site does its best to protect customers, it never asks for customer info, it advices customers to delete all traces on their computers, all orders are deleted after completion and all messages are periodically erased

    The Crime Bay improved their security after the hack, so law enforcement could not hack it again.

    However I apreciate a lot this article that wants to help murderers.

    Goodness what a lot of replies from the hitman site’s admin. All the hitman sites are potentially scams and you may get arrested for just visiting them as the police can track down most users. Most people accessing the sites are not murderers but are just messing around, although the police will charge them with “soliciting murder” and may sentence them to life in prison.
    These are the wprst of any website anywhere – HUgely dangerous but profitable for the admin and giving people to the police to arrest.

    The hitman sites don’t have any encryption or way of keeping the data you enter safe.

      The sites are likely all run by the FBI/ police and have been set up to get you arrested for “soliciting murder”, which they have successfully done many times even though there has never been any evidence of any order ever being carried out.
      The sentence for using this site is many years in prison, which the site gives no warning about as they want to trap you and don’t give a shit about you.
      The esccrow sites used are always fake, so if you part with money you will never see it again and are likely to be arrested.
