Default Re: How to prevent misuse of Internet Crime?

Yes, the Internet is riddled with criminals. They send out spam, infect our PCs with malware, steal our identities, and so on.

But I'm not sure exactly what you want these detectives to do. Track down the people who stole your credit card numbers? Infected your PC? Sent you spam? That could get very expensive.

Part of the reason why cybercrime is so rampant is that it's very hard to catch the criminals. They could be in any country on the planet. They're very good at hiding their trails.

Let me put it another way: Credit card fraud costs the major banks far more than it costs you. If detectives hired by the banks can't catch the bad guys, will your detectives succeed.
