Kristy Lynn Felkins, a 36-year-old woman from the state of Nevada, is facing 10 years in prison after a failed attempt to hire a hitman for her ex-husband. 

The woman sent $5,000 worth of Bitcoin (BTC) to a dark web website that promised to do away with her former spouse back in 2016. 

Felkins placed an order for her husband’s murder under the KBGMKN moniker on the website that turned out to be a scam.  

Initially, the woman had some reservations, pointing to the fact that all hitman-for-hire websites are considered to be scams and that it could be an FBI honeypot.
