Federal Internet Fraud

As our lives and economy has moved online, law enforcement has too. The U.S. Attorney’s offices have sections dedicated to the prosecution of cybercrimes and internet fraud. These prosecutions include:

  • Computer hacking

  • Internet fraud

  • Computer intrusions

  • Identity theft

  • Peer-to-peer networks

  • Smishing and Vishing

  • Investment Fraud

Prosecution of these crimes usually involve novel theories of law, complicated issues involving searches and seizures, and huge amounts of digital data. Effective advocacy for these charges involves not only a keen knowledge of the rules of evidence, but also a good understanding of the current application of the law to digital components and information.
