Bank Fraud If your future is at risk, your attorney can make all the difference.

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."
