Financial crimes are prosecuted on both state and federal levels, usually dependent on the number of people or the amount of money involved or the scale of the operation. A single individual creating counterfeit checks or writing fake prescriptions would most likely be charged by the state, while a group of people committing credit card fraud in an organized manner or the employees of a company involved in mortgage fraud would be prosecuted by the federal government.

Regardless of agency investigating or bringing charges in relation to the alleged actions, financial crimes are zealously prosecuted by both the state and federal government. Lengthy prison sentences, burdensome fines including full restitution and loss of professional licenses are just some of the penalties that can be imposed by the courts.
