Cybercrime. Many have heard about it and many already know the dangers it imposes. Cybercrime has become the most prevalent crime all over the world. With the various types of cybercrime that are circulating, it is almost impossible to not come across one or more forms in your life. Attacking computer systems, cyber-bullying, illegal/prohibited content, online child sexual abuse materials, identify theft, online trading issues, email spam/phishing and online scams or fraud, all count as types of cybercrime.
It is important to know what they are and how you can avoid being caught up in such schemes. If you have an email address, it is very likely you have received an email that looks something like this. Many are smart enough, these days, to look at this phishing scam and delete it straight away, not falling for the scam. However, this isn’t always the case. These scams can be detrimental to your privacy rights. Many scams take your information, leave nasty viruses on your computer and can even take away your money.
Cybercrime is scary and dangerous. It is time that people start paying attention to how it is affecting the economy and many innocents’ lives.
