White Collar Crime Division

Fraud is a serious crime. In worst case scenarios, fraud artists can bilk millions of dollars from unsuspecting victims, companies, and government agencies. Such criminal operations are often quite sophisticated and require special attention from law enforcement.

To that end, the District Attorney’s White Collar Crime Division works with the Bureau of Investigation, the sheriff’s department, local police, and state agencies to investigate and prosecute individuals engaged in complicated fraud schemes throughout the County. The Division’s specially trained deputy district attorneys prosecute frauds in which losses exceed $300,000. The Division also handles fraud cases that require expert prosecution because of their complex nature.

Real Estate Fraud

Some individuals attempt to steal the money or home equity of homebuyers and homeowners through fraudulent real estate transactions. This type of crime can have a serious impact on its victims. As a result, the District Attorney’s White Collar Crime Division has a Real Estate Fraud Section dedicated to prosecuting fraudulent real estate transactions.

The Los Angeles County Department of Consumer Affairs runs a Real Estate Fraud and Information Program. For more information, you can visit them online at You can also call the Los Angeles County Real Estate Fraud Hotline at (800) 973-3370, 24 hours a day.
