  • 5. Foreword Cyber crimes are one of critical issues faced to the world. Every day we find hacking and bait advertising emails in our inboxes. Cyber warfare is going on between America and China. Criminals use identity of big corporations and banks to make money from developing countries like Pakistan. To curb crimes, America has established Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3). There needs to be 99% awareness on cyber crimes in Pakistan. Pakistanis are law abiding people and have been victimized by cyber criminals. Sajed Imtiaz has set a world record for reporting 100 cyber crimes in eight months to IC3 and the FBI. He has selected 25 cases for information of police force, students and general public. I find them factual and informative.

  • 57. 100 Cyber Crimes of 225 Million Dollars Reported Internet is necessity of life since last decade of 2nd millennium. Chinese software programmers have been attacking American establishments and organizations but Beijing was denying these charges. South Korea also blamed Chinese criminals for virus-based cyber attacks. United States of America has been trying to curb cyber crimes through different initiatives and Internet Crime Complaint Center. Cyber criminals have been victimizing people of developing countries by offering rewards, cash, business deals and misleading advertising. They use women names and email accounts to obtain personal information of internet users. Sometimes they call people from illegal telephone exchanges. In response, some people submit money to get lottery prizes. Criminals play games with innocent people. Sajid Imtiaz is first Pakistani national who has reported 100 cyber crimes to Internet
  • 58. Crime Complaint Center since August 2012 to date. These crimes are related with bait advertising, defaming big brands and organizations, sleeping banks’ accounts, diplomatic bags and international investment deals. Mostly crimes were targeted toward Burkina Faso and United Kingdom from email hackers. UNDP and African Development Bank were also used by the criminals. Investigation officers at IC3 and FBI have been able to track criminals and shared information with respective countries of cyber criminals. In February 2013, they found confirmed location of hackers in outskirts of Shanghai. While reporting crimes, knowledge of Sajid Imtiaz also increased. He knew about huge black money available for investment at low markup. He was able to know about fake online marketing companies like Six Dollar Click and Two Dollar Click. On cyber crimes, he wrote captivating film scripts; Total Freedom and One. He also promoted IC3 in digital media.
  • 59. Let us be clear. It incurs time, energy and cost (TEC) to report a cyber crime. Sajid Imtiaz also reported crimes to Publik Demand, a California-based organization. He has reported crime incidents of 225 million dollars. It is a world record and difficult to break. U.S. Administration must give him befitting award for persistent positive attitude. Keeping in view TEC involved in reporting crimes and provision of email addresses to IC3, his award money should be at least $100,000 along with medal and certificate. Awards will encourage other internet users worldwide in war against cyber crimes. Hopefully Congressman Steve Israel and Courtney Powell would advocate his heroic deed. Technology has changed life. It must be used in court of laws and public organizations besides on motorways. Technology can help us curb crimes in Pakistan. Sajid Imtiaz has also been reporting crimes to cyber crimes wing of FIA. There must be copyright protection police in the country to improve soft image of Pakistan abroad.
  • 60. Pakistan is a close ally of America in war against cyber crimes. Together we can bust cyber crimes. Still IC3 has to catch more cyber gangs for safe surfing, e-marketing and e-commerce. A book on cyber crimes must be published for education of police force and students of information technology in Pakistan. Hopefully Pakistan Society of Criminology and Punjab Information Technology Board would publish this book in 2013. According to estimate, this book would be best seller in Pakistan if marketed systematically. Internet Crime Control Authority Internet is the greatest invention of 20th century. Today there are over 1 billion internet users worldwide. E-commerce, e-banking and e-marketing are new domains of knowledge. By the time, cyber crimes also increased in the world.
  • 61. Sino-US cyber war is known to everyone. America is the first country who established Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3). Daily more than 200 complaints are registered with the IC3. Criminals are detected and their information is shared with their respective governments. Rich PTC and Six Dollar Clicks wasted time, energy and money of internet users worldwide. There still remains an important issue that is compensation to cyber crimes victims. So far IC3 is unable to provide compensation to cyber crime victims. This issue was highlighted by several writers. Pakistan is also against cyber crimes. Federal Investigation Authority has formed cyber crimes wing to control the crimes in the country. It is trying to provide compensation to cyber crime victims.
  • 62. Today internet users need Internet Crime Control Authority (ICCA) for promotion of e-commerce and safe surfing. ICCA must be formed as early as possible in France or United States by the United Nations Organization. Due representation must be given to China, India, France and Pakistan in ICCA. ICCA must have offices in every developing country. Cyber crimes must be dealt professionally and speedily to dispense justice. Only ICCA can avoid ongoing cold cyber war between America and China. Hopefully Secretary General UNO, Ban Ki-Moon would take affirmative action.

  • 65. Discussion Questions Q- Are there cold cyber wars going on between America & China and America & North Korea? Q- Are there time, energy and cost involved in reporting internet crimes? Q- Should government award cash prizes to cyber and internet crimes reporters? Q- Should FIA launch awareness campaign on cyber crimes control in Pakistan? Q- Is this study original and of international standard? Q- Should this book be taught in academies of law enforcing agencies in the world and Pakistan? Q- Should Sajid Imtiaz be given award for improving image of Pakistan abroad?
