Check and Credit Card Fraud

This is a white collar crime. Here, one's objective is an economic gain by deception or trickery. The prosecutor must show that the accused intended to defraud a financial institution insured by the United States government and that the institution relied on a false representation made by the defendant. The Prosecutor generally demonstrates that the accused with the specific intent to defraud a bank executed a scheme or plan.

Bank fraud may include making false statements to a lending institution to obtain a loan. Bank fraud may be prosecuted in state or federal court. Sometimes, prosecutors charge the defendant with "conspiracy" if it can be shown that the defendant acted in concert with one or more individuals in committing the dishonest act.

Defenses to Bank Fraud

A common defense to bank fraud is that the defendant did not intend to deceive the bank for economic or personal gain. This could be shown by "consent" given by the bank. Sometimes, a "civil compromise" may be reached whereby the defendant makes full "restitution" to the bank, and in exchange the prosecution agrees to drop the criminal charges. This may require that the defendant make a lump-sum payment to the bank. In more serious bank fraud cases sometimes the prosecution agrees to eliminate any jail time in exchange for full payment of the loss incurred by the bank.
