The complaints of online crime reached 303,809 in 2010, of those 182,099 included a reported dollar loss or other kind of victimization. The top ten types of online crime reported to the IC3 are:

1. Non-delivery Payment/Merchandise 14.4%

"The 2010 Internet Crime Report demonstrates how pervasive online crime has become, affecting people in all demographic groups," the report said." As this report demonstrates, cyber criminals have become more creative in devising ways to separate internet users from their money."

"We have implemented new tools to help law enforcement bring online criminals to justice," Gordon M. Snow, assistant director of the FBI's Cyber Division, said in a statement.
