Bank Fraud Charges

Bank fraud charges can cover a wide array of actions, but it’s a pretty simple concept. Anyone who has lied to a bank or lender to obtain money or assets under false circumstances can be charged with bank fraud. The penalties include up to one million dollars in fines, or up to 30 years in prison. If you’re facing federal charges of fraud, you need a tenacious defense lawyer on your side from the start. Call us to find out how we can help you.

One of the most common types of bank fraud involves fraud on loan or mortgage applications. It’s unfortunate that many lenders have encouraged persons, and even businesses, to misrepresent the income they have made and other factors on their loan applications. When you later don't make your payments, the banks then review your application to look for misstatements of your income or any other falsities, no matter how small.

If the banks find anything incorrect on the application, they will often turn the case over to the feds to pursue prosecution. It can happen that a bank or mortgage lenders will try to use the government as a collection agency, to collect on loans that they encouraged their clients to take in the first place. If this is the position you are in, you need to hire a defense lawyer immediately.

Bank Fraud Defense AttorneyYou may be charged in a federal court for mortgage or bank fraud, even if the bank or mortgage company knew that you were making a false statement on the application.
