SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) – Georgians are taking some of the biggest hits in the country from cyber crime.

The FBI just released new data from 2018 that found when it comes to internet crime victims, Georgia is one of the top 10 states. There have been nearly $3 billion in losses nationwide to cyber crime.

WTOC spoke to experts Wednesday who say the number one way criminals are stealing your money and information is through a simple email. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says the number one way they are trying to stop it is through education.
