Consumer Fraud Unit

The Fraud and Economic Crimes Unit investigates and prosecutes felony cases related to consumer fraud and white-collar crime when jurisdiction can be established in Montgomery County. The Division accepts citizen complaints of fraudulent conduct, as well as investigations initiated by other law enforcement agencies. The Fraud and Economic Crimes Division works with these other law enforcement agencies and regulatory authorities to investigate and prosecute those cases. Cases accepted by the Division for investigation and prosecution are generally very complex in nature and time-consuming, requiring prosecutors and investigators to have specialized training and experience. Typical of the types of cases normally prosecuted are Home Improvement Fraud, Insurance Fraud, Securities Fraud, Mortgage Broker Act Violations, Identity Thefts, Telemarketing Fraud, and Embezzlements.
