Fulls are packages of stolen credit card and bank account information and identifying characteristics. They're called "fulls" because each unit within contains the full set of information needed for successfully committing credit card fraud -- such as an individual's mother's maiden name, computer passwords, CVV (three-digit security) and PIN numbers. Often, they are illegally traded in online carding forums, and sell at a premium to other fraudulently obtained credit card information.
