What Constitutes Financial Fraud?

Financial fraud can encompass a wide array of activities including, but not limited to, embezzlement, investment fraud, securities fraud, healthcare fraud, and insurance fraud. These illicit activities can be prosecuted under state or federal law, depending on the scope and nature of the fraudulent conduct.

At its core, financial fraud involves:

  • Misrepresentation: Providing false information to an individual or entity.

  • Omission: Withholding material information that has a significant impact on the financial decision-making process.

  • Manipulation: Altering records or information to mislead or deceive.

These acts, when performed intentionally to procure unlawful gain or cause someone a loss, are pursued vigorously by law enforcement agencies and prosecutors. You want an attorney on your side who knows the ropes and will act just as vigorously in defending you against the charges you are facing.

Financial fraud is a category of white-collar crime, which typically refers to non-violent, financially motivated crimes committed by business professionals, corporations, or public officials. White-collar crimes can involve simple acts or sophisticated, intricate financial transactions using advanced technology by people in positions of trust or authority.
