hmm.. clever fraudsters are tricky and costly to bring to justice.

but I can't help feeling this would become a very expensive non-entity like the NHS University.

Still, in principle it seems like a good idea, even though the real extent of cybercrime is not that clear (i.e. many people believe they are victims when they are not).

While cybercrime is a serious problem one might hope they might turn some attention to "everyday" crime first.

"While cybercrime is a serious problem one might hope they might turn some attention to "everyday" crime first."

Isnt it the case that cybercrime, including piracy, now funds most other types of "everyday" crimes?

its a shame some African countries are being 'tarred' with that brush.
