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 California State court, financial crimes usually involve forgery, fraud, or deceptive practices, though the number of real estate fraud and identity theft prosecution is on the rise. In addition, there are California and federal laws against computer crimes, elder abuse, embezzlement, extortion, identity theft, check fraud, credit card fraud, and other so-called “white collar” offenses.
