Tracking Cyber Crime: PharmIncome and CigIncome Drugstore affiliates

The first Drugstore affil i visit.
I know PharmIncome since a long time from ScriptKiddieSec but never blogged, it's time.

PharmIncome is a fake pharmaceuticals affiliate, there is an AntiSpam policy but I really don't think they believe what they write, since i've see recently some spambot advertising for these powered fake pharma, and also many adverts on undergrounds forum.

For give you an idea about 'how' the business work:
All order made on your PharmIncome fake store are tracked by PharmIncome.
They pay you a commission up to 40% depending on orders bought, payement is every week on Friday (US dollars only)
Commission formula is: YOUR PROFIT = RETAIL PRICE*40%
Minimum amount of payout for WebMoney and Paypal is $10, for wire transfer $500.
And they charge the following costs for payouts:
Webmoney: – 2%
Paypa: l- 2%
Wire transfer: – $50
