It is of utter astonishment to see that the absence of the proper legalization of online crime is so not available in India. We need to see that what we can do in order to bring the proper perspectives in the purview of legalities regarding the online criminal activities and the usage of internet and criminal activities that happen about the scams of the online fraud.

The customers of the Australian company have complained about the forms of a four member team to carry out an enquiry to see that much guilty is Vivian about his criminal use of the credit card for his fraudulent activities around the web. The first point of strike is how someone could carry a mobile phone inside the office premises to carry out an inquiry regarding the cybercrime that has been committed.

The enquiry has further revealed that Vivian has done similar credit card scam in his past as well and has a long record of joining and leaving the companies as and when required after stealing enough credit card data from the company database.

India lacks the jurisdiction when it comes to bringing the crimes regarding violation of privacy, breach of confidentiality, computer related offences, identity theft, cheating of personating by using identity theft, personating using computer resources and violation of privacy online into the purview of the Indian jurisdiction. The penal codes of India are not inclusive of the cases of thefts of identity.

The rising toll on the cases of such internet scam can be put under the controls of the legal movements in the Indian jurisdiction.
