Major Fraud Unit

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. 

If you believe you are a victim of Major Fraud, please fill out the form below.

Filing a complaint will not stop any civil statute of limitations from running. Please consider consulting with a private attorney to determine what civil remedies are available to you. If you do not know of an attorney who can represent you, you may want to call the Santa Clara County Bar Association’s Legal Referral Service at (408) 971-6822.
