Botnet-related fraud

A botnet is a collection of robots and can be used maliciously to gain financial or other personal information.

Botnets send the majority of spam.

This can lead to web users giving out personal information that fraudsters can used to commit fraud.

If fraud has been committed, report it to Action Fraud.
