Don't Be a Loser to Online Crime
Overall crime statistics for 2016 are pending, but since 2010 the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center received more than 3.4 million reports of crime conducted via the internet. According to the agency's 2015 Internet Crime Report, there were more than $1 billion in losses resulting 288,012 complaints. The same report indicates that despite its small geographical footprint, Maryland ranked sixteenth overall for losses in excess of $16 million.
