Hitchcock (Net Crimes & Misdemeanors: Outmaneuvering Web Spammers, Stalkers, and Con Artists) is celebrated for her work to pass tough cybercrime legislation, train law enforcement, and help victims fight back.

Revealing many of the most extreme and horrifying examples of modern cyber crime, she seeks to educate the millions of YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook users about the various hazards posed by new media. Covering the identity theft and subsequent murder of Amy Boyer in 1999, avoiding sexual predators, defending bank accounts against fraudulent phishing scams, and the rise of online bullying, Hitchcock provides a compelling, broad-ranging collection of case studies from which consumers can learn to defend themselves and their families against online criminals.

This collection of real-life horror stories is a must-read for true crime aficionados and fans of such television fare as 48 Hours Mystery, Forensic Files, and the Investigation Discovery channel. Guaranteed to shock and surprise, this book will forever change the way users experience the internet.
