Internet Crime Is A Major Concern

Internet crime is not a strange phenomenon. The internet is a mirror of our “live” society. You have scum bags and real criminals in our normal society, and of course you fin d the same kind of people on the internet. Nor more or not less. Of course the so-called anonimity, or at least the feeling of it, attracts a lot of not so nice people… We live in the age of possibilities. Not to say that all of these possibilities are good, because we all know that some of them are quite horrid. But, as always, we have to take the good with the bad. One aspect of technology that introduced a vast array of possibilities was the personal computer. Or should I say is the personal computer? There is still more yet to come. The outstanding advantage this technology offers us concerns the Internet. Suddenly everything was within our reach. No more writing letters on paper or driving to the bank to deposit a check. Home computers offer us unlimited conveniences. However, there is also a dark side to these wonder machines, which also concerns the web. Surely you’ve heard the phrase “Internet crime” a time or two. The question is; how can we ever put a stop to it?

Who do you suppose deals with Internet crime? The FBI plays a great role in this game. Our federal government is always doing its best to capture sex offenders and criminals who pose online and dupe the innocent. The sad part is that this is a redundant process. It’s never-ending to put it nicely. No matter how hard or how long our federal government works at it, there will always be more Internet crime. That’s just the way our world works. It’s like illegal firearms. It doesn’t matter if laws are put in place to keep them out of civilian hands, all the criminals who want them will still acquire them somehow. Although this sounds like a dismal point of view, it’s the truth nonetheless. Now, there are things you can do in your home to prevent ever being affected by Internet crime. You should always monitor what your children are doing on the computer. Who are they talking to and do you know this person on the other end? Don’t let your kids chat with strangers. The Internet is a candy store for pedophiles and sex offenders. It’s prudent to always be aware.

Keep your personal information to yourself! When it comes to Internet crime, identity theft is always a major concern. Ever since we all got jacked into cyberspace, identities have been stolen left and right. Ask your bank or credit card companies about what they can offer you to prevent this as well. When it comes to the Internet, it’s best to play it safe.
