Major Fraud Unit

Print
The Major Fraud Unit is responsible for prosecuting cases involving serious and complex fraud, also known as White Collar Crime, where the loss exceeds $100,000. The Unit emphasizes theft cases that are accomplished by lying or the breach of a trusted or fiduciary relationship with the victim as opposed to the taking of property covertly, or by force or fear.  Major fraud theft involves obtaining property through false pretenses, trickery, fraud, or embezzlement. The Unit also prosecutes investment and tax fraud cases regardless of the dollar loss.  The Unit has expanded its outreach to include the Internet, which has become a major source for significant fraud.
