An Internet crime is criminal activity that takes place on the World Wide Web. There are numerous crimes that fall under the category of computer crime. Cyber terrorist crimes can be aimed at a person, a business, or a nation.

Spam is the most common of all internet crimes. Spam is the sending unwanted electronic messages to multiple recipients. Spam is virtual junk mail. Pyramid schemes, fraudulent pleas to help ill stricken youngsters come in the form of spam messages. Some spam asks the recipients to donate money to a cause; the cause or organization requesting the donation does not exist.
Malware and Spyware

Hackers will send a user a program that is disguised as a downloadable file. Some webpages mask malware that upon entering the site the user's computer will be at risk. Malicious spyware can infect a computer and actually be aimed at stealing an individual's identity. The hacker's virus can even log the keys that the computer's user types. Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, birthdays, and other personal information that if obtained can be used in an attempt to pose as someone else. ?According to a Symantec report at the end of 2006, Beijing is now home to the world's largest collection of malware-infected computers, nearly 5 percent of the world's total? (Greenberg, 2007, pg. 1, para. II).
