What Is Fraud?
The basis of fraud relies on deception, which can be implemented in a variety of settings. Through fraud, individuals may give up information that is used without their knowledge resulting in identity theft, insurance fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, securities fraud and more. There have been very large cases of fraud that have resulted in millions of dollars lost by individuals or corporations, making this crime a serious concern. Having an attorney can help protect you from any level of fraud.
A conviction for fraud can result in severe consequences, which may include:
- Prison sentences that may include life sentences without parole
- Heavy fines and payment to victims
- Loss of professional licenses and accreditations
