Crime is down – if you exclude online crime!

Official crime stats apparently exclude a range of online offences – and if they were included, the crime rate would actually be going up! That’s according to a piece in the FT, which says that crime rates would be 40% higher if these were included.

That just gives you an idea of the scale of online crime and the extent to which crime has migrated online.

When you’re dealing online, make sure that you know who you’re dealing with!
