To put it simply, it is extremely difficult to measure the extent of cyber-crime occurring in the United States. This is in large part due to the fact that when cyber-crime is recorded by authorities, it is not necessarily recorded as a computer-related offense. Rather, it is most often recorded as a case of fraud, por nography, or some other conventional crime. Consequently, the scope of cyber-crime, at least as far as official statistics are concerned, is masked by reporting and recording practices. Presently, the best data available on the question of the extent of cyber-crime are found in survey data, particularly the FBI’s Cyber-Crime Survey. These data, however, can only give us an estimate of the scope of cyber-crime. The lack of substantial data on computer-related crime may be another argument against classifying cyber-crime as a unique form of criminality at the present time. - -
