Ohio residents, like their counterparts across the country, use their computers for practically every thing, from running their business to ordering their groceries. With so much information out there on the Internet and the use so rampant, it is inevitable that crimes related to computers also pop-up. But not all computer crimes are the same and when someone finds themselves facing white-collar criminal charges related to computer fraud, it is important to understand what the charges are so one can defend themselves accordingly.
Phishing is perhaps the most common form of computer fraud. It involves sending an email asking for someone's personal bank account information while misguiding him or her as to the use of the information. The email typically includes a link to a website where the alleged phisher asks for the relevant data.
