Brooklyn Bank Fraud Defense Lawyer

Representing New York Bank Employees and Others Accused of Crimes

Bank fraud is a general term for state and federal criminal offenses that involve stealing money under a variety of guises from financial institutions. This means that bank fraud is often tied into other kinds of white collar crimes, including identity theft, check fraud, tax fraud and more. A government press release from January 2012 demonstrates just such a situation:

"Hector Medina, 31, of the Bronx, NY, and others, obtained at least 35 U.S. Treasury income tax refund checks. The majority of these checks were obtained as a result of the filing of fraudulent tax returns, with false W-2 forms attached, on behalf of citizens of Puerto Rico without their knowledge or consent. Matilde Fabien-Pichardo, 23, of Stamford, used her position as a bank teller in Stamford to cash the fraudulent checks presented to her by Medina and others by using the legitimate accounts of bank customers. This scheme resulted in a loss of at least $180,195.77 to the Internal Revenue Service."
