    Abstract:

    Cyber-related frauds have been the most prevalent category of cybercrimes in this digital era. However, the fact that it has been defined and placed under different categories by different organisations all over the world has not made it easier to compare the data of incidents. This research was aimed to analyse the cyber-related fraud incidents in Malaysia based on a seven-year data of reported incidents. The researchers believe that some insights can be gathered by understanding the trend of occurrences of the said incidents.
