Kyle Armstrong, an FBI special agent, said at a conference in New York on Wednesday that one of those cybercrime crimes involved drug trafficking, kidnapping and ransom attacks, Bloomberg reported.
Armstrong said there were thousands of cases in this regard at the federal office, "so what I'm talking about is a small handful of those crimes."
The US official noted that the FBI has noticed an increase in illegal activities, facilitated by digital payments.
He pointed out that 10% of drug users in the world register their purchases through illegal markets on the Internet.
Kyle Armstrong stressed that there was an increase in e-currency extortion schemes on the Southwest border of the United States.
