"is using a fake name in an email address a cyber crime?"


  1. Yes. Please sit back and wait for the cyberpolice to backtrace you.

  2. Actually, due to the ambiguous wording of The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (U.S. Code Title 18, Part I, Chapter 47 §1030), it actually IS illegal to ever use a false name on the internet, including when registering on a website or, yes, for an email address. Sending email under a false name is illegal under this act.
