In this New York Times article, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., the Manhattan district attorney, said he just handled his fourth major cybercrime case in a month.

As he said at a press conference, “We’ve come to realize that the Internet is the crime scene of the 21st century.” He added that street gangs were moving a lucrative part of their business inside and online.

The article also quotes another identity theft victim who became “frustrated by the fact that the bank did not seem interested in finding a culprit; they just wanted the issue to go away.”
