The Broad Scope Of Federal Fraud Charges

Bank fraud is a broad category of the law and is defined as a crime in which fraudulent means (such as fraudulent pretenses, representations or promises) were used to obtain money, assets or property from a financial institution. Some crimes can be charged at the state level, or they can be brought as criminal charges in federal court.

Federal bank fraud crimes can include:

  • Check, debit and credit card fraud: checks, credit or debit cards are used to illegally obtain money
  • Accounting fraud: the illegal alteration of a company’s financial statements
  • Phishing fraud: a scam designed to steal user data, information or credit details
  • Loan fraud: presenting false information to obtain a loan
  • Money laundering: depositing cash from a crime through a business or bank to make it look like it was legitimate

Any federal criminal charges are serious, but federal bank fraud crimes are especially so.
