Major Fraud

Deputy Chief

AUSAs of the White Collar Enforcement section bring a tremendous wealth of talent to the investigation and prosecution of fraud. Prosecutors are assigned early in an investigation, often working with multiple agencies that pool investigative resources, to work with the special agents, maintaining responsibility for the cases from their inception through the completion of trial.

Corporate Fraud Task Force AUSAs are committed to the investigation and prosecution of corporate entities and executives who intentionally mislead the investing public by engaging in deceptive accounting, insider trading and falsification of corporate financial information. Prosecutors work closely with the Securities & Exchange Commission and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission to ensure the integrity of the marketplace by prosecuting individuals and entities engaged in Ponzi schemes and other fraudulent investment practices.

AUSAs assigned to the Major Fraud section handle only the most serious fraud cases that present a significant federal interest. Working tirelessly to protect the interests of the U.S. and the citizens of the district, major fraud prosecutors target identity thieves, telemarketers, tax evaders and persons engaged in insurance fraud, bank fraud, wire fraud, mail fraud, mortgage fraud and fraud committed against federal agencies.
