Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller is one of three state attorneys general selected to serve on a consumer protection working group aimed at combating financial fraud.

The Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force, which is chaired by U.S. Attorney Eric Holder, will work across federal law enforcement and regulatory agencies, with state and local partners, to strengthen efforts to address consumer-related fraud. The working group plans to establish a best-practices tool kit, legislative, regulatory and policy initiatives, and an information-sharing structure.

“I am honored to be selected to serve on the Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force and look forward to working with the federal government, law enforcement and fellow attorneys general,” Zoeller said. “Investigating and prosecuting financial crimes from mortgage scams to tax fraud is critical to protecting all consumers. I look forward to enhancing and developing best practices in the area of consumer protection and sharing these ideas with state and local officials.”

The task force includes representatives from several federal agencies, including the U.S. Secret Service and the FBI, and includes state attorneys general Lisa Madigan from Illinois and Roy Cooper from North Carolina.
