Video Transcription:

Someone who’s being investigated by the federal government, or even various state law enforcement authorities, can sometimes be the last one to know. If an investigation is being done secretly and it’s being done carefully, the target of investigation may not know until the investigation is well down its path. That said, typically someone who’s under investigation will find out in one of a couple of different ways.

One—They’ll receive a subpoena for their business records or the company that they work for will receive a subpoena, or they’ll hear through word of mouth because a colleague or someone else that they worked with or done business with them in the past will receive a subpoena.

Third—They may actually receive a target letter from the U.S. Attorneys’ office, from the Department of Justice, and that’s a formal notification by law enforcement authorities that you are the target of a criminal investigation.
