The law enforcement authorities revealed that serious cyber criminals often start out with minor thefts in such video games as World of Warcraft. They also claimed that finding out how people end up on a particular criminal path might help with early intervention.
The police revealed that cyber criminals are capable of doing lots of damage, but not in a traditional criminal way, pointing out that the crimes may begin with a small scale. It turns out that youngsters don’t consider some sorts of criminality serious: for example, stealing gold off each other in online games or cheating. No one expects to be pursued for stealing a sword off the other player in WoW.
World of Warcraft is a popular online role-playing game that features thousands of players from all over the globe communicating with each other in a virtual space. The police say that the motivations of Internet users who end up committing theft in role-play games are not money but the challenge or desire to experiment. Most often,people involved don’t realize what they are doing may be against the law. The police believe that serious cyber crime has the same roots: the challenge or desire to experiment, starting with play, stealing swords and gold in online games.

|While the theory makes some kind of warped sense to a drooling idiot, it only tells me that "The Law Enforcement Authorities" put this particular piece of propaganda out there to (yet again) appeal to the masses for the need to "monitor" (or 'study') online activities..., leading to outright CONTROL of the Internet by them...So they can HELP us by "deterring theft".|
PURE RUBBISH. We're under attack 24/7 by these liars.
|Perhaps criminals who are more successful like politicians should be studied|
|@2: Haha, I agree. Power is like a magnet that attracts scumbags. We should take control of their mediums of expression, to study their proclivity towards being human dross.|

|I always love your comments warwicked they always crack me up' sadly they have an element of truth to them as well.|
|@2 criminals like Tony Blair who profited 25 million in 4 years in office as PM will never get caught or prosecuted for the million plus deaths or the financial catastrophe his actions caused the economy in the UK and elsewhere,truly a criminal genius and helped in a lot of cases by his own wife,luckily she is a Barrister and can always represent him in court (not that he will ever get brought to one).|

|looks,like video games are full of police reports because law enforcement reveals how cyber criminals act for stealing or cheating; it to imagine kids or parents calling the police for complain or video games companies as well because how police knew about that if it full of reporting or was part of crimes. budgets for cybercrime don't go just for go to have all that information to the public or it's in this days police can cheating playing to catch etc..and resolve what all internet companies don't do.|
|Intresting, So that is what they are doing to make it feel like they are doing their jobs, you know that on the 20th everymonth when people get their childtax, the police think they are helping by sitting in school zones, I help keep the children safe by taxing the parents but also by taking that money don't you make a child desperate by not allowing the parents to buy something for them? But the police officer is just trying to make it look like he is doing his job (quota). Life is simple, people do what they want to get fullfillment, you bother other, the system gets you. But what you work for is your own insight. Is that not right. Leave the damn kids alone, you just make them worst for ware by taking a game to reality. VR isn't here yet but I would rather my kid steal in an online game as part of the skill set then do it to my wallet. Fault of the parents again for the last 20 years of not teaching the kids there is a difference between a game and reality.||
