Some of the charges that may come out of an investigation include:
- Money Laundering- The use of a “legal” business or entity to wash clean money or goods obtained illegally.
- Embezzlement – even a few dollars here and there out of petty cash can ultimately lead to charges of embezzlement. Something as simple as using a company vehicle for a family trip could potentially lead to embezzlement charges.
- Fraud- Insurance, Tax, Medicare/Medicaid, Loan, Mortgage, Consumer, Stock, Financial Institution fraud.
- Insider trading – your friend gives you a tip on a hot stock and before you know it, you are under investigation by the SEC for insider trading.
- Obstruction of justice – a colleague asks you to take some files home for him to pick up later and you don’t think anything about it until you find they are being investigated. Unbeknownst to you, these files are critical to the investigation and you are now being charged with obstruction.
- Possession/sale of Counterfeit goods – often involves copyright or trademark infringed goods.
