The legally recognized definition of fraud is “a false representation of a matter of fact – whether by words or by conduct, by false or misleading allegations, or by concealment of what should have been disclosed – that deceives and is intended to deceive another so that the individual will act upon it to her or his legal injury,” though the much more simple and common definition is “dishonesty calculated for advantage.” Either way, criminal fraud is certainly not something that is taken lightly in the state of Michigan. Penalties for felony fraud, which is what all criminal fraud offenses are categorized as, can include steep fines, jail time, probation, or even all of the above – which is why effective legal support is so crucial to fraud investigations. Types of criminal fraud you may be accused of include:
- Bankruptcy Fraud
- Identity Theft
- Tax Fraud (tax evasion)
- Insurance Fraud
- Mail/Wire/Telemarketing Fraud
- Securities Fraud
- Credit/Debit Card Fraud
