What Constitutes Fraud?
Most fraud crimes are committed in order to gain a financial advantage by misrepresenting their needs. However, some people may be charged with fraud without understanding why. In some cases, people are directed to do things so their managers can get away with criminal behavior. Our team can help you investigate the claims and evidence made against you to help you avoid a conviction.
Some cases of fraud could be:
- Falsifying a workers’ compensation claim
- Exaggerating property damage to gain a bigger settlement
- Faking an injury to obtain an insurance settlement
- Misrepresenting earnings to pay a lower tax amount
- Participating in mail scams designed to take peoples’ money under false circumstances
There are many other acts that could be considered fraud. All of them require help from a criminal defense lawyer who understands what it takes to defend against them.
