  • How a Government Worker Became One of the Most Wanted Drug Dealers on the Dark Web

    Some people's lives are definitely worth a documentary or a movie. Alaa Allawi's story is incredible and shows how a kid struggling in the dirt has become one of the most wanted drug dealers in the world, especially after being a government worker.

    Back to the origins

    Allawi was only 13 when the USA invaded Iraq. Five years later, he applied for an interpreter job for the US Army, encouraged by his family, who saw a future in the American collaboration.

    He got the job, an excellent opportunity, especially since it was paying way too much for Iraqi standards of life. However, with Al Qaeda killing anyone who collaborate with Americans, he had to keep a serious disguise to avoid being recognized.

    The work took him everywhere and exposed him to all kinds of brutal situations, but the opportunity was totally worth it.

    Life in the USA

    Years later, Allawi was ready to start a new life in the USA. He served to a certain level, and he received the opportunity of a lifetime. He landed in San Antonio and was welcomed with an allowance, a driving license, and other useful papers.

    When he moved in with a close friend, they decided to rent the extra bedroom out, only to cope with the expenses. And that’s how this lady came into her life, a party girl who loved cannabis and parties. Allawi was ready to join the group too.

    Getting evicted from his home, he started selling cocaine to survive, and soon after that, he joined AlphaBay, a Silk Road successor.

    Meanwhile, he was also flooding the campus with all kinds of counterfeit pills made at home, many of them based on the placebo effect.

    The real life investigation escalated and traced him to one of the top 10 best selling vendors on AlplaBay. He sold drugs to undercover agents, who were only interested in gathering evidence. He thought the dark web anonymity would be enough, but this proves once again that Tor is not 100% safe.

    Shipping all over the world, Allawi was given in by a bunch of parcels sent to North Carolina.

    What made the authorities go for Allawi

    Allawi would’ve gotten away with it if he didn’t push it that far. His work involves lots of chemistry and implied adding fentanyl to counterfeit pills. The substance is known to cause addiction and can even become fatal.

    Circumstances worked against him too. During those years, the USA was struggling with an opioid epidemic. Believe it or not, over 230,000 people passed away because of it. And since Allawi was fueling the trend too, he became a primary target for the authorities.

    More and more clues built up Allawi's case, and as if all these weren’t enough, he made it even worse by sending money left and right. For instance, he used $30,000 to make a down payment for an expensive place in a fancy area of San Antonio.

    Months before being caught, Allawi took his car to a mechanic for some maintenance. As the car was lifted, people there spotted a small black box hidden underneath. Although everyone understood that it was a tracking device, Allawi kept fueling his lavish lifestyle, helping the authorities gain even more evidence.

    Meanwhile, some of Allawi’s customers were dying due to the fentanyl he put in his counterfeit pills. With no experience in chemistry whatsoever, he failed to supply what his customers needed. Instead, different pills had different doses of fentanyl, meaning some people died, while others barely survived.

    Alaa Allawi today

    Collaborating with postal offices and friends of the victims, the authorities managed to establish a connection between DopeBoy210 on the AlphaBay dark web market and the guy supplying drugs in the neighborhood.

    With plenty of evidence, the court had no issues at all condemning Alaa Allawi once he was arrested. The evidence was impossible to contest, and there was no way out. Even his lawyer recommended him to plead guilty in an attempt to save a few years.

    These days, Allawi is in a federal prison in New York. He has a 30-year sentence to serve. His case drew nationwide attention because it was the first prosecution that involved fentanyl, the dark web, and digital money in the southeastern part of the country.

    He never looked like a drug ring leader, and perhaps that's why he didn't draw too much attention at first. Instead, he looked like the average man from the Middle East getting an opportunity in the USA.

    AlphaBay was taken down a month after Allawi was convicted. With all these, the government failed to tackle the opioid epidemic. Dozens of thousands of people died over the next months.

    Fentanyl is still considered a type of poison. China used to be the primary exporter for the USA, both legally and illegally. Today, it looks like Mexican cartels took this job over.
