Types of Cybercrime
Depending on the circumstances, you could face state or federal charges for various types of illegal dealings carried out online or on a computer network. Common types of cybercrime include:
Internet Fraud: Any time you deceive someone in order to get them to give up something of value (usually money), this constitutes fraud. When this happens online, it is internet fraud. Common examples of internet fraud include advance fee fraud, non-delivery of merchandise fraud, lottery scams, phishing, and work at home scams.
Hacking: You don’t have to be a computer genius to be a hacker, at least in the eyes of the law. California has laws against accessing, altering, copying, deleting, or using data on a computer or computer network without permission.
Identity Theft: If you have deliberately obtained someone else’s personal information with the intent of using it for any unlawful purpose, this qualifies as identity theft. If the personal information was acquired online, this counts as a cybercrime.
Cyberstalking: It is illegal to harass or threaten someone to the point where they fear for their safety or that of their family. When the harassment or threats are made online by email or text messages, this qualifies as cyberstalking.
