About the Task Force

On July 11, 2018, President Trump signed Executive Order 13844, establishing the Task Force on Market Integrity and Consumer Fraud and identifying the Deputy Attorney General as its chair. The Task Force is part of a government-wide initiative to combat fraud against consumers – particularly the elderly, service members, and veterans – and corporate fraud that victimizes the general public and the government.

Why is the Task Force's Work Important?

Fraud committed by companies and their employees has a devastating impact on American citizens in the financial markets, the health care sector, and elsewhere. The President’s Executive Order directs the Task Force to invite participation from law enforcement partners at many departments and agencies. By working together, we can achieve more effective and efficient outcomes. Drawing on our pooled resources, we can identify and stop fraud on a wider scale than any one agency acting alone.
