Created by the Attorney General in 2011, the Fraud and Financial Crimes Division investigates and prosecutes criminal misconduct involving a broad array of financial crimes including fiduciary embezzlement, complex financial frauds, and tax crimes. 

The Division is staffed with prosecutors, civilian investigators, State Police Troopers assigned to the Office, victim witness advocates and support staff.  The Fraud and Financial Crimes Division works closely with the business and non-profit community as well as local state and federal investigative and law enforcement agencies to prosecute as well as prevent criminal financial activity. By targeting illegal schemes ranging from complex mortgage fraud to simple larceny, the Division strives to protect Massachusetts consumers and businesses.
