The consequences can be many and varied, including personal hurt, distress, privacy violations and financial loss. Young people (that is, of school age) are particularly vulnerable to cyber-crime while playing online games
This project seeks to understand the types of cybercrime to which young people are exposed while playing online games, and the rate of incidence of their exposure
