Task Force in Va. to Target Financial Fraud

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Federal and Virginia authorities are joining forces to investigate and prosecute complex financial fraud cases.

U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride and several other federal and state officials will announce creation of the Virginia Financial and Securities Fraud Task Force at a news conference Friday in Richmond. Among the agencies joining the effort are the Securities and Exchange Commission, the FBI, the IRS and the State Corporation Commission.

The idea is for criminal investigators and civil regulators to build cases together, using the different enforcement tools they have available.
