European Police have taken a joint action against an entity selling sensitive user data online. Several domain names related to the notorious platform RaidForums through the operation named TOURNIQUET. 

EuroPol has achieved this through hard work and determined planning. The platform RaidForums operated through the principal domain name RaidForums.com. Two other domain names pointed to it: Rf.ws and Raid.lol

All of these domain names have been brought down by the EuroPol. In fact on the domain name RaidForums.com, EuroPol has even posted that the domain name has been seized! 

This was achieved through the deployment of police officials from numerous European countries. Police officials from the UK, US, Germany, Sweden, Portugal and Romania took part in this action.

RaidForums was a platform that operated as a marketplace to gain users personal data. The platform gathered this sensitive data when these were leaked online. The leaked data included credit card information, bak details, usernames, passwords, etc. These leaks hurt the people and business entities alike, leaked related to whom were offered for sale. 

The person behind this platform is already under custody. The domain names were operating which were brought down by this joint coercive action.
