Hacker selling stolen Facebook accounts

A hacker named Kirllos has a rare deal for anyone who wants to spam, steal or scam on Facebook: an unprecedented number of user accounts offered at rock-bottom prices.


To date, Kirllos seems to have sold close to 700,000 accounts

Question: How can an hacker sell stolen information like that without getting cut?

I just get amazed that someone can say: "Hey, I have hacked into a system, stole 700 000 accounts and they are all for sale" and not get cut. So how can they sell this kind of information without getting cut?

I know they can:
  • Use a "mule"
  • Play online poker games and "lose" to a friend
  • Get cash money
  • ?!?
