ABSTRACT
A number of criminological and social theories have been postulated to explain criminal activities and the behavior of conventional criminals. However, empirical research to validate these theories in the context of cyber activities and the application of these theories to cybercrime are still very sparse in literature. With increasing use and migration of products and service such as banking, commerce and other financial services to internet platforms, research is warranted that examines the application of these theories to addressing the problem of cyber criminality. In this discourse, our attention is directed towards appraising these theories and applying them to provide some explanation for online criminal behavior.
