Fraud and Financial Crimes Division investigates and prosecutes cases involving a broad array of financial crimes, including fiduciary embezzlement by lawyers, stockbrokers, accountants and other professionals who steal client funds; theft and fraudulent recordkeeping by employees; complex financial frauds such as pyramid schemes, telemarketing fraud, commercial bribery and mortgage fraud; large-scale consumer fraud schemes; identity theft, and tax fraud crimes by individuals and businesses.  

FFCD’s most significant cases are those that have a dramatic financial impact upon unsuspecting and vulnerable victims who trust is violated, and upon the community as a whole.  The division’s prosecutors work closely with Criminal Bureau financial investigators, Massachusetts State Police troopers assigned to the Attorney General’s Office, and local, state and federal investigative and enforcement agencies.
