There are several convicted cases of cyberstalking and Internet fraud/abuse (e.g., Misha Glenny, a UK-based journalist, recently wrote a book on the subject matter appropriately titled Dark Markets). For this critical thinking assignment, you are required to scan the popular press (especially The Wall Street Journal) and find at least five cases of individuals who have been convicted of cyberstalking, fraud and abuse. Document each case and provide a brief synopsis. What issues do these cases bring to light? What laws might attach?
