Fraud and cybercrime

An timely article for our next class will be on fraud: “Tech helps UK fraud reach a 12-year high” (5 February 2008) http://news.zdnet.co.uk/security/0,1000000189,39292629,00.htm

Idem for this one on identity fraud and Facebook. The social network really is not my cup of tea and I found it more problematic than enhancing communications. “Forget Identity Fraud, What About Facebook Identity Fraud?” (7 Februrary 2008) http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20080206/170004191.shtml
