If your computer has been a criminal target, or if a thief uses your computer as a tool to commit a crime without your knowledge, you may benefit from the services of a computer fraud attorney. Computer fraud occurs when a person gains unauthorized access to your computer, or interferes with information stored or displayed on your computer. It can also occur when someone stops your computer from working properly, or when someone uses your computer data to steal information. Examples of computer fraud crimes include theft, blackmail, forgery, embezzlement, cyber-stalking, and distribution of child pornography. Computer fraud lawyers will know the information you need to protect yourself from becoming a victim, or to stop being a victim if you have already become one.
