What is bank fraud?
Bank fraud often times includes other charges such as mail or wire fraud which can increase the potential consequences. It is imperative that you speak with an attorney from Rothman & Associates, P.A. as soon as you are arrested.
Illegal actions involved in typical bank fraud cases can include:
- Providing false statements
- Forging checks
- Loan fraud
- Falsifying loan documents or financial documents
- Other financial crimes involving a federally insured bank
One of the more common types of fraud perpetrated on financial institutions involves loans or mortgage application fraud. When borrowers do not make payments, banks review the applications and look for misstatements of income or other misrepresentations.
Even if the vast majority of information you provided a bank was correct, you can still be charged with bank fraud. A conviction can come with up to 30 years in federal prison and up to $1,000,000 in fines, and these penalties could be compounded if other forms of fraud were involved meaning you could face potentially devastating penalties.
