Criminal intent: what, me worry?

How much cybercrime simply goes undetected? That's sort of like asking how many universes exist beyond the outer boundaries of our own.

You'd probably conclude it looks a lot like what you'd expect of a universe where crime goes mostly undetected and isn't something people think much about.
