Identity theft, non-delivery of payment or merchandise and scammers impersonating the FBI topped the list of complaints to the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) in 2010, with victims reporting hundreds of millions of dollars in losses.

The IC3, a partnership between the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), today released its 2010 Internet Crime Report, which provides a wealth of information about online crime, both nationally and on a state-by-state basis. The report also goes into detail about various types of online crime, criminals and their victims.
