Default Cyber-Crime and Spammers

The problem is much deeper than appears on the surface receiving a piece of annoying spam.

As the Internet as evolved so have the criminal elements, and our regulatory bodies like the Attorney Generals Office, Federal Trade Commission, and FBI as helpless to do anything to stop them. The best they can do is “file” the reports. I know I have given reports.

It is up to each of us, that use the Internet, to be vigilant, and do our part to stop them. This raises another problem most of us are used to a regulatory body to stop the criminal and we go about our business as usual. However we are talking about “cyber-crime”, something that has not been addressed. Kind of like the days of the Wild West and there was no Sherriff around.

I have personally gone to great lengths to stop some and the parties that can help have shown little or no interest. Why, because it takes resources, and by turning a blind eye they can also profit from the activities of the cyber-criminal. Always prepared to point blame elsewhere. The media?? It is so difficult to prove they would rather stand aside even with me laying the proof at their feet.

Now without going into details, at this time, I would rather see if there is even any interest before I spend the time explaining how they operate. Otherwise I am typing away and wasting bandwidth…

This is a great forum and I don’t want to waste time on something that does not hold interest to the members. So let me know if you have any interest and I will take the time to explain. It is not meant to be a how to course for anyone to do the same, but help those that do business on the Internet by owning their own domain name and website.

Have a Nice Day
