Australian Woman Charged Over Purchase of Drugs With Bitcoin on Dark Web
A 32-year-old woman from Brisbane was charged with buying drugs on a “dark web” portal.
On Friday the Australian Border Force (ABF) announced the arrest of the woman suspected to have imported MDMA (aka Ecstasy), as well as opioids Fentanyl and Oxycodone.

Fentanyl is believed to be between 50 and 100 times more potent than Morphine, making it more difficult for recreational users to determine a safe amount of dosage.

The police alleged that “the woman used a dark web portal and Bitcoin cryptocurrency to order, pay and organize multiple shipments of illicit drugs from United Kingdom”.

The AFP boasted that it has the capability to monitor criminal activities on the dark web and said several arrests were made last year through its online investigation. And the ABF warned that “people shouldn’t assume that the dark web is invisible to Australian agencies”.
