Submission + - FBI/IC3: Impersonation, intimidation and scams, yep that's the Internet (networkworld.com)

coondoggie writes: The FBI and Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) issued their annual look at the state of the dark side of the Internet which is indeed thriving with all manner of scams and intimation tactics being used by criminals. While complaints filed with the IC3 are down slightly through 2012 over 2011 (289,874 v. 314,246, respectively), losses from online scams are up over 8% topping out at over $525 million through the same time period.
