Bank fraud is the use of fraudulent means to obtain money, funds, credits, assets, securities, or other property owned, held by, or under the custody or control of, a bank or financial institution. Bank fraud generally involves the use of a scheme or false or fraudulent representations, as opposed to physical force as in a bank robbery. Examples of bank fraud involve the use of:
- Stolen, Forged or Altered Checks
- Rogue Traders
- Fraudulent Loans or Loan Applications
- Money Laundering
Bank fraud is often charged along with other white collar crimes, such as tax fraud. If you suspect you are under investigation for bank fraud, contact Kevin E. Thorn at 202 349-4033 right away.
