Government agencies are limited by their resources, both money and people. It came as no surprise to me that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is struggling to investigate cases of financial fraud. They simply don’t have enough investigators. I see the same problem with the SEC and FTC… not enough people to investigate all the allegations of fraud and shady dealings.
What are agencies to do when they can’t investigate everything that they think merits attention? Sadly, many cases go away with no action.
