The state of Massachusetts takes every opportunity possible to protect consumers and businesses from being victimized by fraud, unfair practices, deception, or other forms of white collar crime. Fraud complaints that are filed by consumers almost always draw the attention of state agencies, and depending on the scale of the crime, can even gain the attention of the federal government. In order to get to the bottom of a white collar crime complaint, an investigation into a business or individual will typically be initiated.
White collar crime investigations can be conducted by the following agencies:
Fraud is a type of unfair business practice that typically involves some form of deception to obtain financial gain from another person. One of the most common forms of white collar crime to be committed, fraud schemes are aggressively investigated and prosecuted by government agencies. A single fraud conviction could destroy your business and your future.
If you have been accused of white collar crimes, law enforcement agencies and officers may try to conduct an investigation into your business. Although their primary goal is to protect the public interest, some officers may not fully investigate a claim before making an arrest. This lack of a full investigation could cause your good name, reputation, and business to suffer because of unfounded accusations of fraud.

If you fear a pending investigation of your business, consult a skilled trial attorney from our firm as soon as possible. We can use our knowledge of criminal law to help you understand what to expect if a government agency is investigating you.
