Over 7,000 adults in 14 countries were interviewed for a study by security software maker Norton. One-quarter of the respondents believe they will be a victim of online crime. However,  ".......only half said they would change their behavior if they became a victim." 

Norton calls cyber crime, The Silent Epidemic.
