Banking/Securities Fraud

If the federal government targets you for prosecution in a bank fraud or securities fraud case, you need a federal criminal defense attorney who is willing to go in ready for trial. In these document-heavy cases, you need a meticulous lawyer willing to sort through all the details.

Bank Fraud

A charge of bank fraud means the federal government believes you have used illegal means to get money, assets, or property from a bank or financial institution. It can also include impersonating bank personnel to take money from its patrons.

Federal bank fraud charges can include:

  • Stolen checks,
  • Check kiting (where a person writes a check knowing the funds are not available to cash it),
  • Forgery,
  • Fraudulent loan applications,
  • Wire transfer fraud,
  • Card skimming,
  • Phishing,
  • Money laundering, and
  • ATM fraud.

Securities Fraud

In the financial world, a security represents ownership of an intangible money interest. It could include stocks, bonds, or ownership options. Securities fraud is illegal behavior that convinces investors to buy or sell securities based on false information. Federal securities fraud charges often target professionals responsible for other people's money, such as accountants and stock brokers. It includes charges for:

  • Insider trading,
  • Internet fraud,
  • Corporate fraud, and
  • Ponzi schemes.
