If not, then you may want to continue reading today's post because we describe a number of things that the Federal Bureau of Investigation considers criminal activities that may lead to serious federal charges and litigation as well.

With the invention of the Internet, it truly became a small world. The internet has made it possible for people to do business with others as far away as the other side of the world. As with traditional business, it also created a new vehicle for criminal activities deemed illegal by our federal government. Law enforcement efforts have resulted in civil as well as criminal litigation and resulted in the shutdown of sites like Pirate Bay in 2014 and Silk Road in 2013.
