GRAPHIC=none Identity theft is one of the

Scam Alert 7 Animation fastest growing white- collar crimes in
America.

That's according to Virginia

Attorney General Bob McDonnell.

The good news is, there's a new
law enforcement partnership being
implemented to cut down on the number
of victims in the Commonwealth.

*CG locator Roanoke
Last Week Whether it's by phone... through
the mail - or over the internet... if a
financial opportunity sounds too good
to be true, it probably is.

That was one of the messages
Attorney General McDonnell shared with
the newly- formed Financial Crimes Task
Force.

Prevention is a critical aspect
of reducing identity theft.

There are also plenty of anti-
scammer laws on the books in Virginia.

But the new joint effort is
focused on coordinating the
investigations and better determining
whose jurisdiction the crimes fall
under.

But McDonnell says, even with the
new regional task force in place,
cracking down on the scammers is

extremely difficult.

27.45 "Some of these scams only stay on
the web for a day or two then they
change the email, they change the
website then they're on to some new
scam. So that's why it's a challenge
for law enforcement to ever pin these
people down because they're truly the
epitome of a moving target." 28.00
