England is one of the most profitable spots for internet criminals because people are accustomed to have relationships online.
Thousands and thousands of people are being scammed over the internet every day, and the problem seems to be getting worse despite all the stories and efforts to curb the problem. Great Britain loses around £162 million per year from cyber fraud. Governments have made every effort to prevent felonies but fraudsters seem to move one step ahead. That is why consumer watchdogs in Britain are encouraging victims to come out and report scams, in that way, more and more people would be aware of the real threats and will be more vigilant on not being next, but victims feel too embarrassed that they rather move on. Experts estimate that only 15 to 20% of all online scam cases get reported. This means the problem is reaching staggering proportions.
