Cyber Crime and ensuing victimization is not individual incidence. It is conjointly hampered or inspired by the group of people within which it is located. Are group of people characteristics relevant for victimization online? This paper examines the cyber crime activities within the perspective of augmentation. Our methodology analyses historical information and its relationship with structural characteristics of the communities that are exposed to cyber crime. We discover that cyber crimes are increasing in context of years, however targeted towards specific age group. The ensuing policy insight is for creating public awareness campaigns in upcoming years.
