Criminal assets worth nearly £800,000 have been seized from drug dealers, money launderers and fraudsters in the last six months.
The law goes after drug dealers and fraudsters
Action taken by the Financial Crime Unit and the Civil Recovery Unit has also seen £17m worth of funds frozen.
The Proceeds of Crime Act allows funds to be targeted, even if there is no conviction. Almost £3m has been seized since April 2003.
Lord Advocate Colin Boyd said the law was hitting criminals "in the pocket".
Half the assets seized in Scotland stay in the country to be spent on initiatives which aim to aid communities damaged by drug dealers.
The Financial Crime Unit, which deals with the confiscation of the proceeds of crime following conviction, recouped £422,421 from convicted drug dealers, money launderers and fraudsters since April.
The Civil Recovery Unit seeks to recover property in the civil courts which is believed to be the proceeds of crime and £368,511 has been recovered in the past six months.
A total of £2.96m has been seized since the powers were introduced at the beginning of 2003.
The lord advocate said: "These figures show that we are making good on the promise to hit criminals where it hurts - in the pocket.
"Working with the police and other criminal justice agencies, the Financial Crime Unit and Civil Recovery Unit are making full use of their new, increased powers to systematically track down and recover the profits of crime."
The agencies work along with the Scottish Drugs Enforcement Agency, Scottish police forces and Customs and Excise.
