The Justice Department, in coordination with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service (USPIS), the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and other law enforcement partners, today announced wide-ranging enforcement actions – including criminal charges, economic sanctions, seizure of criminal proceeds and civil injunction lawsuits – along with the execution of search warrants to combat a global network of mass mailing fraud schemes that collectively have defrauded millions of elderly and vulnerable victims across the United States out of hundreds of millions of dollars.  Simultaneously, a consortium of government agencies and non-profit groups led by the department’s Consumer Protection Branch and Elder Justice Initiative announced a public education campaign to heighten public awareness and educate potential victims and their families about these schemes.
