What Are Fraud Crimes?
Those who are charged with fraud crimes work in a variety of fields, commonly including accounting, tax preparation, brokerage firms, and other areas of finance. However, fraud crimes can cover a wide range of circumstances, and you do not need to be working on Wall Street to find yourself facing fraud charges.
Examples of fraud crimes include:
- Bank fraud
- Bankruptcy fraud
- Credit card fraud
- Healthcare fraud, including Medicaid and Medicare
- Identify theft
- Insurance fraud
- Internet fraud
- Mail fraud
- Prescription fraud
- Real estate fraud, including mortgage fraud
- Securities fraud
- Tax fraud and tax evasion
If you believe you are under investigation for a fraud crime, or if you have already been charged, your first step should be to secure legal representation. It is recommended that you speak with a lawyer before speaking with law enforcement or prosecutors.
Penalties of a Fraud Conviction
How your case will be charged, and what penalties you face with a conviction will depend on the details of your case, such as the amount of money involved in your case. The circumstances of your case will also determine whether or not you face felony or misdemeanor charges.
The penalties of a criminal fraud conviction can include:
- Jail time
With a conviction for a fraud crime, you may be saddled with thousands in fines and years in prison. In some more severe cases, you may even face a loss of vital personal rights. Having a criminal record can make it challenging to find employment, secure housing, and can have a negative impact in other areas of your life, such as in family law matters like custody cases. You have worked hard for the life you have; do not risk forgoing legal representation in your fraud case.
