Computer Hacking

Many fraudsters will hack into computers in order to find out a person’s personal information. Because so many individuals carry out banking tasks on their computers, their financial information may be vulnerable as well.

There are also “phishers” that may create fake websites that look like a legitimate website so that a person attempts to login to their account from that page. This attempted login results in the hacker obtaining password information. If the actual account is a bank account or an account with a merchant, the hacker then has the information needed to log into the account and retrieve very personal details.

To collect evidence in these cases, prosecutors must obtain a search warrant so they can retrieve computer equipment from the individual or individuals suspected of the fraud. But just because information may exist on the computer does not mean the computer’s owner put it there. Many times, there are multiple people using one computer. The prosecution must prove that you were the person who placed the incriminating evidence on the computer. If they can’t, then their case is very weak or they don’t have a case at all.
