The aim of this chapter is to introduce the lector to online crimes, in which it is possible to link to organized crime and other crimes. The vast growing business of the Internet in modern times, with its inherent international reach, would have been unthinkable in previous eras. Through international joint actions, States can fight crime and curtail the enjoyment of property illegally acquired through criminal activity, particularly with respect to the misuse of online network and money laundering.
