  Annotation: This Bulletin studies victims of fraud and economic crime and proposes ways to expand victim support services.
  Abstract: Like victims of violent crime, fraud and economic crime victims may suffer psychological and emotional harm and stress-related physical effects in addition to financial damage. Victims of economic crime need protection from further harm; information about rights, remedies, the criminal justice process and legal advocacy; practical assistance and referrals to people and agencies for help with short- and long-term problems such as mental health counseling and financial assistance. Most importantly, they need to see justice done and offenders held accountable. The Bulletin contains priorities for helping victims of fraud and economic crime; ways the Federal Government can lead the support; a suggested plan of action at the national level; and a response to the action plan from the Office for Victims of Crime.
