Carderplanet case[edit]

In the mid-2000s, Golubov was involved in a hacking case with international payment bank cards under the nickname of Script.[10]

In 2001 or 2003, was launched and registered in Madagascar, where a group of about 7,000 card-criminals were engaged in bank card fraud. The participants registered on the site were mainly representatives of Eastern European countries.[11]

Because of Wikileaks-related activities, the leaders of the criminal group were tracked down after the FBI, secret service within The Treasury Department of the US and the post inspection service of the US were engaged in the investigation of frauds using information from the website.[10] On July 7, 2005, Golubov was detained at his home in Odessa.[12]

Golubov spent six months in the Lukyanivska Prison in Kyiv. He was threatened with imprisonment for up to 12 years. On December 22, 2005, at a preliminary hearing in the Solomensky District Court of Kyiv, Judge Volodymyr Skoryk decided to release Golubov from custody and transfer him to bail MPs Volodymyr Makeyenko and Volodymyr Demyokhin. They made a deposit of ₴50,000 each. The judge denied MasterCard and Visa representatives to appear in court as civil plaintiffs.[13]

After four years of court proceedings, Golubov was fully acquitted by the Solomensky District Court of Kyiv under Articles 200 part 2, 255 part 1, 190 part 4 because of "lack of corpus delicti."[14]
