The continuing popularity of smartphone and mobile tablet devices is making it easier for consumers to share their personal data in a digital environment.
Unfortunately this trend is provoking cyber criminals into illegally manipulating the digital footprints left behind by consumers for fraudulent purposes. The consequences for those affected by such criminal behaviour can be both financially and emotionally devastating.
