Financial Crimes detectives' primary tasks are investigating financial crimes involving deceptive practices, forgery, credit card fraud, identity theft and counterfeiting. The investigators work with local financial institutions and merchants as well as local and federal agencies on a regular basis regarding financial crimes.
Credit Card or Check Cases
If your credit card number(s) and/or checks have been stolen, contact your financial institution immediately and file a police report. If you discover that your checks have been written without your consent, file a police report first. Once a report has been initiated, provide the case number to your financial institution. They will assist you in completing Affidavits of Forgery which will be necessary in any future criminal proceedings.
To report credit card fraud or other financial crime, call the non-emergency dispatch number at (309) 888-5030.
