I’ve spent part of my day reading through the Internet Crime Complaint Center’s 2015 Internet Crime Report, and the numbers… are impressive. There were 288,012 complaints received by IC3 in 2015 and more than one billion dollars in losses reported.
Hot topics? Business Email Compromise (BEC), Email Account Compromise (EAC), and ransomware.
On a positive note (if there is any), based on the demographics, Internet crime doesn’t appear to be particularly sexist or ageist.
Everybody’s money is good.
