12% in UK suffered from online fraud

A recent survey found that 12% of online users have suffered from online fraud in UK. 16% people think that the responsibility rests with the banks. While some think that it was up to their internet service provider.

5% of surveyed suffered from online fraud while shopping, 3% had been victims of identity theft and 4% had their back account or credit card details stolen.

Lack of knowledge, firewall in the PC or anti-spyware and clicking links in spam messages are known to be the major causes.
