An Israeli teen arrested on allegations of phoning in bomb threats to at least 245 American schools and Jewish community centers made some of the threats for money on the dark web.

Michael Kadar, 19, who was arrested in Israel in March, is accused of running a bomb threat business using the dark web marketplace AlphaBay, which was shut down in July, Vice reports

According to the FBI, Kadar charged $30 for each bomb threat and $45 if one of his customers wanted to frame someone for the message. He received $240,000 for his services.

The scheme began in July, stoking fears of rising anti-Semitism and prompting scores of evacuations, the FBI alleges.

Kadar was arrested after he gave away his IP address by failing to use a proxy server.

Kadar has been charged in the U.S. and Israel, but so far he’s not expected to be extradited to America. But he faces up to 10 years in prison on the charges in Israel.

Federal Judges Dismiss Cases After FBI Hosted Child Pornography Site

The FBI’s child pornography sting “Operation Pacifier” was successful at locating and identifying abusers, but it has come under attack by federal judges across the country.

Agents took over the “dark web” site, The Playpen, for two weeks, when 48,000 images and 200 videos of sexual abuse were posted or swapped. The FBI arrested more than 180 people in the U.S.

But the Knoxville New Sentinel reports that at least seven federal judges ruled that the FBI’s takeover of the site was illegal and violated federal rules of criminal procedure.

The judges cited constitutional violations.
