What is Cybercrime and Online Fraud?
Cybercrime and online fraud is any illegal activity involving the internet, such as websites, chat rooms, email, and social media accounts. These crimes involve the use of the internet to communicate false or fraudulent representations to individuals and businesses. These crimes may include, but are not limited to advance-fee schemes, non-delivery of goods or services, or computer hacking or employment / business opportunity schemes.
A cybercrime can cause great financial and emotional harm to anyone. Small businesses, senior citizens, military members, and young adults, along with their families, can be particularly vulnerable to a cybercrime. Fraudsupport.org has resources for anyone in the United States impacted by cybercrime.
