Experienced Federal Prosecutor to Lead Fight against COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Fraud in Chicago

Make no mistake that even during a global pandemic federal agents and law enforcement will actively investigate and prosecute crimes. According to the latest press release from the US Attorney’s Office in Chicago, the Chief of the Financial Crimes Section of the United State’s Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois is taking the lead as the COVID-19 Fraud Coordinator for the Northern District of Illinois which encompasses the Chicagoland area.

According to U.S. Attorney Lausch, “My office will vigilantly guard the public from fraudsters who try to take advantage of a vulnerable time for our nation…(a) national crisis is by no means a safe harbor for criminal activity.”

And this direction comes from the top; U.S. Attorney General William Barr has directed U.S. Attorneys nationwide to remain vigilant in detecting, investigating, and prosecuting criminal activity related to the crisis.

There has been wide reporting of all sorts of schemes, locally and throughout the country, such as individuals and businesses selling fake cures or test kits for COVID-19 and engaging in other forms of fraud. There was a massive seizure of fake coronavirus test kits at Chicago’s O’hare airport. Others have been targeted by local law enforcement for price gouging.

If you find yourself under investigation, accused, or prosecuted for COVID-19 (Coronavirus) fraud, contact the Law Offices of Darryl A. Goldberg at (773) 793-3196 for representation or a consultation.

Mr. Goldberg has vast experience defending individuals and businesses accused of fraud following national emergencies and disasters, such as so-called FEMA fraud, military or government contracting fraud, consumer fraud, and antitrust matters in addition to the various other fraud schemes prosecuted under the United States Code and state and local laws.
