Fraud can be charged as a white collar crime or simple theft, depending on the various circumstances involved. A conviction could also carry various penalties relative to what type of fraud has been committed.
Categories of fraud include:
Any sort of misrepresentation of yourself can be grounds for fraud, especially if you gained or were eligible to gain some sort of profit and deceived another person in the process. You cannot afford to go without legal representation during this time!
Penalties can vary widely and may be impacted by the amount or value of goods. Insurance fraud, for example is only a Class C misdemeanor for a claim of less than $500 and carries a $500 fine as a penalty. On the other hand, if the fraudulent claim is $200,000 or more, the penalties include a $10,000 fine and up to 99 years in prison.
