The Rise and Fall of Incognito Market Admin Pharaoh: OSINT & Federal Sentencing

Over the past few months, I've been covering the saga of Incognito Market in detail. From exit scams to extortion, the infamous admin known as Pharaoh has been at the center of it all. Including the proposed extortion of buyers. After all that he tried to back peddle the situation.

In this video, I recap the events leading up to Pharaoh’s arrest. We begin with the Incognito Market exit scam, where Pharaoh robbed all its buyers, leading to a significant uproar. But the story didn’t end there. Pharaoh then turned to extorting darknet vendors, demanding additional fees even after the exit scam.

On April 1st, after seeing Pharaoh’s announcement to start extorting darknet buyers, I felt compelled to warn the community. My video titled "Don't Pay the Ransom: Incognito April Buyer Extortion Imminent" aimed to protect buyers from his threats. The community's reaction was a mix of anger and determination, hardening against future attacks.

The most recent development? Pharaoh, the principal administrator of Incognito Market, has finally been caught and is now in federal prison at Brooklyn MDC. His capture was made possible through stupidity on his part.

Pharaoh’s attempt to hide his identity wasn’t enough. His social media profiles, including Twitter, Medium, GitHub, and LinkedIn, provided a treasure trove of information. From analyzing his tweets to examining his professional background, we pieced together his activities and connections.

Law enforcement’s investigation uncovered extensive evidence against Pharaoh, including controlled buys of counterfeit medications and records of all transactions on Incognito Market. The charges he faces are severe, including continuing criminal enterprise, distribution of controlled substances, narcotics importation, money laundering, and selling adulterated medication.

The potential sentences are staggering, with the most severe charge potentially leading to life imprisonment. Adding to his woes are upward departures in sentencing, which could significantly increase his prison time due to factors like his leadership role, use of special skills, and obstruction of justice.
