While the government has always kept an eye on suspicious activity relating to white collar crimes, in recent years a number of factors have raised its levels of scrutiny, investigation and prosecution. Since 9/11, government agents are more concerned about the connection between money laundering and terrorist activities. Due to the financial crisis in 2008, investigators are watching businesses to ensure corporate compliance and accurate bookkeeping. They are also looking more closely at the mortgage industry for fraudulent lending practices. In addition, federal prosecutors have increased monitoring of individuals and companies with foreign assets and accounts, in search of reporting violations. Most recently, due to the new government health care system, there will certainly be an increase in Medicare fraud investigations.
