Michigan Internet And Online Crimes Attorney

The internet is a central part of modern life. It’s the medium through which we communicate and conduct many of our financial transactions, with both public and private spaces. So, it’s no surprise that many of the ways in which it is possible to violate the law “in real life” have digital equivalents. And in some cases, the internet has also paved the way for new kinds of offenses that have led to the passage of new laws.

What Is Cybercrime?

Internet crimes, also sometimes called cybercrimes, refer to any crime that is conducted over the internet, whether on phones or more traditional devices. Some of the most common violations include:

…as well as identity theft and fraud.
