NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – We're learning more about prosecutors cracking down on financial crimes - also known as white collar crimes.

These usually target the elderly for identity theft or false paperwork scams.

District Attorney Ben David tells us there are now special prosecutors to work on these cases in hopes of bringing some relief to the victims who rarely speak up in this situations.

David says it's important to work these cases regionally - so each prosecutor will cover about 25 counties a piece.

He considers these crimes the most complex and underserved in the state.
