Netacea Quarterly Index: Top 5 Scalper Bot Targets of Q3 2022


Article Contents

    Netacea’s Threat Research team investigated the top five items targeted by scalper bots from July to September 2022.

    The research revealed how scalper bots continue to adapt to a changing market. Although graphics cards, once a constant feature, no longer hit the top five this quarter, other long-time favourites such as Yeezy sneakers and PlayStation 5s continue their streaks in our Index as scalpers stick to tried and tested products.

    Overall, scalpers centred their strategy on making bulk purchases of popular, affordable, limited-edition items with high profit margins, rather than items with a lofty price tag.
