Bank fraud covers a variety of white collar crimes. People tend to get caught up in bank fraud since they believe they’re not harming anyone in particular.

Contrary to such impressions, however, bank fraud is still a crime that results in hefty charges.

Definition of Bank Fraud

There are two main methods of attempting bank fraud: posing as a financial institution to trick people out of their money or illegally obtaining funds from a financial institution. Whether you pretend to be a bank or lie to a bank, both are considered fraud.

Bank Fraud Crimes

Bank fraud comes in varying degrees of complexity and severity. It’s even possible to be guilty of fraud for making what seems like a small mistake or white lie.

Examples of bank fraud crimes include the following:

  • Check forgery – Deliberately tampering with the details written on a check such as changing the amount or altering names or forging a signature.
  • Internet fraud – Posing as a financial institution online or creating a website for a nonexistent institution and convincing people to send money to you.
  • Fraudulent loan – Withholding or falsifying required information on a loan application. This may involve lying about your income, identity, or employment. You can also be charged with fraud if you apply for a loan and file for bankruptcy immediately after.

Avoid Bank Fraud Charges

Most banks are backed by the federal government. This means bank fraud is usually a federal crime. Being charged with it could leave you owing thousands or millions in restitution and spending decades in jail.

    Client

    Mr. Manciagli has lived and traveled all over the world, including Latin America, and his legal work has taken him to Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, Panama, and Jamaica. It was important for me, as a foreigner in the U.S., to have an attorney who understood me from a cultural level and who I could speak to in Spanish. If you or a loved one needs a criminal defense attorney, Jeff Manciagli is the attorney you should call.

    My lawyer in FL recommended Jeff when I got arrested in GA and didn't know what to do. I got pulled over in a cash-cow speed trap town 20 miles above the state line and they called a K-9 unit and got probable cause to search my car. I was livid and felt so violated. Luckily I hired the best of the best. Jeff always called/emailed me back promptly when I had questions about my case, and Always spoke to me as an equal. He took care of everything and when it came time to go to court was honest and logical in discussing what was best and how my plea would affect my future. Under his council I felt calm and in control. I was facing 3 misdemeanor charges and got them all dropped on the condition that I do a small amount of community service, pay a fine, and don't get in any more trouble for a few months. I didn't even get points on my license for the original speeding ticket. At the end of the day, money is replaceable- my time and freedom are not. If I or anyone I know ever has trouble in GA again, I will be calling Jeff.
