Fraud Charge Defense: Embezzlement, Elderly Fraud, Identity Theft and More

Fraud and financial crimes are greatly dependent on two existing factors:

  1. There must be an individual or entity that accepts or takes money or property from another that is illicit. Illicit means the act is illegal in some form, and forbidden by law.
  2. The individual or entity in question has used these finances or property to benefit from (Thomson Reuters, 2017).

You may be thinking, “How can anyone possibly defend an act of this nature?” However, it is not about defending the act, it is about proving in a court of law that both of those above-mentioned factors exist in the case.

What Are Common Fraud or Financial Crimes?

Because of the nature of the crime, a person can be charged and categorized for a much more serious charge and have severe implications that could be detrimental to one’s life and future. Even if a person is found not guilty, or is given a lighter judgement and/or sentence, a person’s reputation could be seriously damaged. Once a reputation has been demolished, it is difficult to impossible for a person to recover from the incident. Such a situation can lead to a hindered future. Such incidences as unemployment, abandonment from family and friends, public scrutiny, and lack of ability to sustain financially can render a person even homeless.
