IC3 Releases 2008 Annual Report On Internet Crime

Number of complaints increase 33 percent over 2007, among other findings

The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), a partnership between the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), today released the 2008 Annual Report on the number of Internet crime complaints received. A total of 275,284 complaints were received in 2008—up from 206,884 (33 percent) over 2007. Total dollar loss reported in 2008 was $265 million—up from $239 million in 2007. The average individual loss was $931.

The report details information related to the volume and scope of complaints, complainant and perpetrator characteristics, geographical data, most frequently reported scams, and results of IC3 referrals.

FBI Cyber Division Assistant Director Shawn Henry said, "This report illustrates that sophisticated computer fraud schemes continue to flourish as financial data migrates to the Internet. It also underscores the need for continued vigilance on the part of law enforcement, businesses, and the home computer user to be aware of these schemes and employ sound security procedures."

The report is posted in its entirety at the National White Collar Crime Center (PDF): http://www.fbi.gov/cgi-bin/outside.cgi?http://www.nw3c.org/downloads/2008_IC3_Annual%20Report_3_27_09_small.pdf
