About Cyber Crimes
eCrime is often referred to as “Internet fraud” or “cybercrime.” eCrime usually requires defrauding another person for personal or financial gain with the intention of causing that person harm through the use of technology. eCrime is a serious offense in California that entails many harsh consequences.
eCrime does not have to do with a particular crime, but rather the way the fraud or crime is committed. Although uncommon regarding other crimes, one who commits deception over the Internet will face consequences from both the state and federal governments. eCrimes are not only directed towards California’s residents, but also across state lines.
Several examples of common eCrimes include:
- Identity and/or data theft
- Credit card fraud
- Scams that require some kind of investment or payment with no return or benefit
Some other crimes that are carried out through the Internet, which are not indicted as a different crime include:
- Purchasing, selling, or trading child pornography
- Criminal threats via the Internet
- Internet harassment or stalking
