Wait, carding is not allowed here? But you was going to add carding/financial fraud section for upgraded members right?

The section has already been added under "Security" tab, it is automatically visible for upgraded members. Financial fraud is strictly disallowed for regular members, if you are a upgraded member, discussion only of it is allowed in the respective section.

Our legal policy allows us to allow carding/fraud discussion.
