Computer crimes are becoming more prevalent now that the world has gone online. Millions of people all over the world are connected by a press of a button. While this has many advantages for both our personal lives and global business, it can have catastrophic damages for both as well. For instance, leaking of valuable business information from a hacker overseas who is using an untraceable IP or even something as small as receiving a virus and having all your personal photos shared with the online world. There are many different types of computer and internet crimes. A few particularly popular crimes are as follows:
- Use of illegal software; and
- Identity theft
Computer crimes are always evolving constantly and becoming more complex. Many internet crimes include different elements of law, making the legal consequences very confusing and complicated.
If you are facing allegations of computer crimes, you should seek immediate legal advice. Depending on the allegations, you could face extradition if the crime you are accused of was committed in a foreign country.
At Bloomsbury Law, we are experienced with dealing with these types of cases and are confident we can help. If you are looking for legal advice, call one of our specialists. We will listen to your situation, answer any enquiries you have and advise you accordingly once we are instructed.
Recent changes to Legal Aid have meant that funding is now very limited for criminal cases, we do not feel that it is possible to represent clients to the standard that we would think is necessary and therefore, we do not therefore offer Legal Aid.
