Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force
February 07, 2011
The Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force was created in November 2009 in response to the economic crisis and increases in financial fraud. The Task Force is made up of law enforcement, investigatory and regulatory agencies at all levels of government. The Task Force aims to improve the investigation and prosecution of financial crimes, improve efforts to help victims remedy losses, and address financial discrimination in the lending and financial markets. The Task Force’s website, stopfraud.gov, has information on the varied types of fraud, reporting agencies, and prevention techniques.
