Orlando Fraud Defense
Fraud is any action that constitutes a willful but wrongful misrepresentation or deception with the express intent of benefitting an individual, either financially or personally. Fraud is subject to both civil and criminal prosecution. Although crimes relating to fraud are typically nonviolent, they are treated with swift and stringent consideration by the Orlando criminal justice system. An accusation or charge of fraud can be extremely damaging, and your best recourse in these cases is to consult with a qualified Orlando fraud defense attorney.
Some fraud actions that you might not realize warrant criminal charges include:
– Prescription fraud or forgery: These charges are treated as drug crimes in Orlando, and accordingly carry strict enforcement and harsh sentencing guidelines
– Mail fraud: Involves any scheme to obtain money or goods through an unlawful use of the US postal service. This can include failure to ship items that have been paid for, misrepresentation of items that have been shipped, impersonation and forged checks
– Computer fraud: including misrepresentation of items or failure to ship items sold on EBay, illegal file sharing, e-mail hoaxes and falsely claiming expert credentials
Conviction of a crime involving fraud can result in costly fines and, in more serious cases, substantive jail time. Additionally, victims of fraud may pursue civil action against an individual found guilty of fraud, sometimes resulting in astronomical judgments or settlements that can take a lifetime to pay off.
