Cyber crime and cyber-related crime is constantly developing and takes many forms, but is essentially any crime where a computer is the target or the tool used to carry out a crime.

People of all ages, in all of our communities, fall victim to cyber crime.

Examples of cyber dangers include:

  • identity fraud
  • cyber-stalking
  • confidence scams
  • cyber-bullying
  • romance fraud
  • hacking
  • distribution of malware

But there are simple ways to reduce the risk of becoming a victim. For advice on staying safe online visit our cyber crime page.

If you fall victim to cyber crime, or experience an attempted scam, report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
