Internet Sex Crimes
The most common types of internet sex crimes are child pornography
and online child solicitation

is illegal. However, when electronic communications are made via the internet depicting distasteful, obscene or offensive conduct involving minors serious consequences can arise. If you are contacted by law enforcement regarding an internet sex crime, the assistance of a criminal defense attorney is absolutely essential.

Internet Fraud Crimes
Fraud and identity theft are the most common types of non-sexual internet crimes. Since the inception of the internet, the Miami criminal lawyers at DMT have been representing clients for these offenses throughout the South Florida area. Computer fraud arises when materially misrepresented information is disseminated over the internet with criminal intent to cause another individual to do or refrain from doing something that causes economic loss. Other types of internet fraud involves identity theft. A common offense involves using computer software to access computer networks of large retail stores to obtain credit card and debit card data which is later sold to third parties. One technique is called "war driving" which involves the use of laptop computers to obtain wireless internet signals. Once in the system, internet hackers install computer programs which hunt for and capture credit card and debit card numbers.
As a result of the large number of cases involving internet and computer fraud, the federal government through the FBI and National White-Collar Crime Center established the Internet Crime Complaint Center to receive internet fraud complaints and refer them to the appropriate investigative agency. The creation of this new center has led to an increased number of arrests involving Miami internet fraud. If you, or loved one is contacted regarding an internet fraud crime, contact the Miami criminal lawyers at DMT before speaking to investigators.
