What Makes a Computer Crime Federal?

Almost any federal crime that can be committed without a computer can also be committed with a computer. Typically, however, federal computer crimes involve using a computer to take or alter data or to gain unlawful use of computers or services in the illegal transfer of funds or to alter the data or property of others. Computer crimes may also be referred to as “cybercrimes” by the FBI, IRS, HSI and other state and federal law enforcement agencies.

Among other federal computer crimes, law enforcement has been hypervigilant about monitoring the internet for the following:

  • Computer intrusions & hacking
  • Dark Web drug offenses
  • Child sex crimes and child pornography
  • Wire fraud and cyber-scams
  • Money laundering
  • Identity theft
  • Human trafficking
  • Mann Act and sex trafficking offenses
  • Damaging or destroying a computer network
  • Deliberately placing a virus into a computer or network owned by another
  • Destroying, taking or damaging computer equipment that belongs to another
  • Accessing a computer or network of another without permission

This is by no means a comprehensive list. If you have any questions around cybercrimes and what they may mean for you, you should contact the Law Offices of Paul D. Petruzzi, P.A. today.
