Budget Finance Company investigation transferred to Southern Ohio U.S. Attorney

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of West Virginia

WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – The handling of the Budget Finance Company investigation has been transferred to the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Ohio.

According to federal officials, the transfer of the matter became necessary after the inquiry revealed that potential victims in the matter include Department of Justice employees who work or reside in the Northern District of West Virginia.  As a result, the Executive Office for United States Attorneys determined that the case should be handled by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Columbus instead of federal prosecutors in West Virginia.  The investigating agencies and the venue will remain the same.

All potential victims were notified of the transfer earlier this week and were encouraged to call (614) 469-5715 with any questions.
