Possible allegations or charges may involve:

  • Cyber bullying/trolling
  • Malicious communications
  • Hacking
  • Internet and social media fraud
  • Phishing
  • Making, distributing or downloading indecent images
  • Online grooming
  • Online scamming
  • Revenge porn
  • Sending viruses online
