ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Attorney General, Hector Balderas, announced Wednesday that he has created a fraud recovery strike force.

The special task force will target criminals and recover public funds that are lost because of fraud. It will be charged with investigating false claims and will partner with whistle blowers to expose abuse and corruption.

Balderas says millions of dollars are fleeced from the public treasury every year through fraud.
