Fighting cybercrime

Date: February 08, 2007

Commerce online has brought crime online. Law enforcement agencies have developed new methods and new relationships to catch the bad guys in cyberspace.

Daniel Larkin is unit chief of the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) at the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) is a reporting and referral system for Internet crime complaints from people in the United States and around the world. Through an online complaint form and a team of agents and analysts, IC3 serves the public and U.S. and international law enforcement agencies investigating Internet crime.

Internet crime, also called cyber crime, is any illegal activity arising from one or more Internet components, such as Web sites, chat rooms, or e-mail. Cyber crime can include everything from non-delivery of goods or services and computer intrusions (hacking) to intellectual property rights abuses, economic espionage (theft of trade secrets), online extortion, international money laundering, identity theft, and a growing list of other Internet-facilitated offenses.
