Internet Fraud

Scranton Internet Fraud Attorney

Internet fraud is a white collar crime committed by use of the World Wide Web. It is a form of wire fraud and is a federal offense. The internet is a virtual playground for those looking to commit identity theft, credit card fraud, sex crimes and kidnapping, in addition to many other crimes. It allows for a perpetrator to gain access into people’s lives often without the victims having any knowledge of the illegal activities. Internet fraud is also referred to as a computer crime or cyber-crime, and will involve a very careful investigation by law enforcement and the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) in the effort to build a solid case against the alleged perpetrator.

Cyber Crimes Attorney

In order for a person to be convicted of internet fraud, the prosecution must first determine that the alleged perpetrator in fact had access to the computer that was used to commit a crime. In addition, it must then also be proven that fraud or theft did take place. When there is very little evidence it can be difficult for prosecutors to convict a person of internet fraud.
