Fraud & Corruption Unit

The Fraud & Corruption Unit focuses on the types of complex fraud, corruption, and financial crimes that the federal government is uniquely qualified to handle. These include cases of public corruption, economic crimes (such as mortgage fraud, securities fraud, health care fraud and other types of financial fraud, identity theft, counterfeiting, defrauding federal programs, and others), environmental crimes, civil rights violations and immigration violations. The Unit's responsibilities also include the investigation and prosecution of organized crime, with a focus on "criminal enterprises," that is, criminal groups that reflect the type of structure, range and continuity consistent with "organized crime."

To contact the Fraud and Corruption Unit, call 1-800-733-6558, or locally in Kansas City call 816-426-3122.

Policy: Voluntary Self-Disclosure

In circumstances where a company becomes aware of misconduct by employees or agents before that misconduct is publicly reported or otherwise known to the Department, companies may come to the United States Attorney’s Office and disclose that misconduct, enabling the government to investigate and hold wrongdoers accountable more quickly than would otherwise be the case.
