Financial crimes vary greatly in their scope and complexity. They can be as simple as adding a zero to a check, or as complicated as Ponzi schemes involving fake investments and phony corporations.

In State court, financial crimes usually involve forgery, or deceptive practices, though the number of mortgage fraud and identity theft prosecution is on the rise. In addition, there are State laws against computer crimes, (see 720 ILCS 5/16D), Identity Theft, (see 720 ILCS 5/16G), and financial crimes involving financial institutions (see 720 ILCS 5/16H).

Other types of fraud, such as those involving securities, are typically prosecuted in Federal court (for a discussion of Federal financial crimes, see the Federal Crimes section of this website). Some types of fraud, like Medicare or Medicaid fraud must be prosecuted in Federal court. There are dozens of State and Federal laws in this area. For an in-depth discussion of a specific case, call the Law Office of Steven R. Hunter today for an office consultation.
