There is a much higher chance of being caught hacking.... Since you leave a lot of paper trails on the internets.No matter how we look at it, hacking is illegal - just like breaking into a person's home. Even authorities require the proper paper work before they can set foot in anyone's premises. Now a days, most people do their banking and even processing credentials online, hackers can easily steal their info which will definitely cause a lot of problems. It may be a bit more life threatening to have strangers break in to my home just to rob me but at least I have the chance to fight them off or identify them so they can be caught. I honestly prefer that than being hacked.
