What You Need to Know About Fraud Charges in Michigan
Under the legal definition, a person commits fraud by making a false representation of facts that they know to be false for their own personal gain. Fraud often involves financial matters. Examples of fraud-based crimes include using credit cards belonging to another person, writing false checks, or creating forgeries. In some cases, even the mere possession of counterfeit items or notes is enough to lead to a fraud conviction.
Common types of fraud charges include:
- Credit card fraud
- Identity theft
- False pretenses
- Uttering and publishing
- Retail fraud
The potential penalties for a conviction of fraud in Michigan vary, depending on the circumstances of the fraudulent act. Many types of fraud involving forgery, or the possession or production of counterfeit documents, count as felony offenses. These could result in substantial prison sentences and other penalties. Our Oakland County criminal defense lawyers will discuss your options, build your case, and tenaciously represent you in court.
