As noted above, today, the FBI and the Justice Department announces nationwide sweep in internet fraud, codenamed "Operation Cyber Loss," at the initiative of the FBI Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC) and coordinated by the offices of the FBI, US Postal Inspection Service (USPIS ), Internal Revenue Service Division-criminal Investigation, the United States Customs Service, United States Secret Service, as well as numerous state and local law enforcement organizations.
