In an age of communication via the internet, limitations are borderless. The communication over computers is beneficial but can also cause damage to the public and other agencies. The crimes have no physical restrictions, such as victims of credit card fraud or personal information stolen while connecting to a network. Moreover, when crimes occur, there are no crime scenes to investigate or witnesses as in real life.
