According to Eck & Calvetti (2002), the Internet is defined as a worldwide system of interlinked computer networks that serve a tremendous number of users across the world by use of the Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP). It provides e-mail and a variety of information from computer servers in government agencies, industries, and educational institutions accessible to users through modem links. The Internet that is used in today’s world evolved from a research financed by the United States Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) was the initial network that offered a remote connection between the first two computer nodes in September, 1969 (Eck & Calvetti, 2002). From 1973 to 1974, implementation of TCP/IP took place, which is the basis of Internet communication. In 1990, the World Wide Web was invented. The World Wide Web is defined as a system of interconnected hypertext documents accessible through the Internet. The Web was invented to be a reservoir of human knowledge as well as human culture so that collaborators within remote sites would share ideas and views regarding the common project (Eck & Calvetti, 2002). The sharing of information over the internet has resulted into digital crimes. The forms of digital crimes include: Hacking, online credit card fraud, and online stalking (Taylor, 2006). According to Taylor (2006), computer hacking is the act of breaking into computer networks with an aim of protest, making a profit, or for purposes of demonstrating one’s abilities in the field of computer programming. This involves the modification of computer software and hardware aimed at achieving a goal beyond the original purpose of the creator. Online credit card fraud is defined as the identity theft that occurs over the Internet and that involves the use of a payment mechanism or credit cards as fraudulent source of money in a transaction (Taylor, 2006). Both computer hacking and online credit card fraud take place over the Internet and are the fraudulent ways of making money, but the latter is considered a very simple form of digital crime. Online stalking is defined as the application of the Internet to harass an organization, an individual, or a group of individuals. Unlike computer hacking and online credit fraud, this digital crime does aim at making money. The costs associated with these digital crimes include the alterations of computer software so that the criminals cannot be able to access the private information in various computers, as well as the loss of stored data as in the case of hacking (Pontell & Geis, 2007). Computer hacking negatively affects the victims on the basis of having their confidential user information such as social security number, bank account data, and credit card number, exposed to hackers (Taylor, 2006). This can therefore result in losing their benefits to other people. Like computer hacking, online credit card fraud result in the theft of another person’s identity so that to divert the person’s benefits into one’s own use. The victims of online credit card fraud can lose large sums of money and remain bankrupt. The victims of online stalking lose toll records, account content, user information, and transactional data. Therefore, they incur costs to maintain and update their computer software in a short time interval (Taylor, 2006).
