The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) receives an average of 5 complaints relating to cybercrimes. That’s the daily average. This much I learned during our live discussion (video below) in On Call‘s pilot episode over at NewsTV Channel 11.
[On Call is anchored by Ivan Mayrina and Connie Sison. It now runs at 1:00 p.m. on weekdays.]
Factor in the unreported complaints and the fact that the Philippines has more than 22 million users on facebook, as of 28 February 2011, then the figure is bound to skyrocket. (See full text of cybercrime law; Explanatory note on cybercrime bill; Discuss here).
