Bank Fraud

If you are under investigation for bank fraud, it is extremely important to obtain immediate, experienced representation. When an individual is charged with bank fraud, prosecutors must prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the individual either: Knowingly executed or attempted to execute a “scheme” or “artifice” to defraud a bank or other financial institution. Or, the individual knowingly executed or attempted to execute a “scheme” or “artifice” to obtain any of the moneys, funds, credits, assets, securities, or other property owned by, or under the custody or control of, a financial institution by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises. Each count of bank fraud can be punishable by up to 30 years in federal prison, a $1,000,000 fine, or both.

Bank fraud encompasses a broad array of conduct. It is because of this broad range of conduct that prosecutors use bank fraud charges as a way to prosecute a large ranges of banking and financial institution related offenses, including:

  • Altered Check Fraud
  • ATM Deposit Fraud
  • Check Fraud
  • Credit Card Fraud
  • Credit Card Skimming
  • Debit Card Fraud
  • Forged Check Fraud
  • Fraudulent Loan Applications
  • Fraudulent Loans
  • Gift Card Fraud
Identity Theft
  • Mortgage Fraud
  • “Phishing” and Internet Banking Fraud
  • Stolen Check Fraud

Often, multiple charges of bank fraud are leveraged against single individuals. One count of bank fraud possibly could carry a sentence of up to 30 years in federal prison, so it is critical that a defense attorney pay close attention to detail and possess the experience to scrutinize every piece of evidence that prosecutors may submit at trial. Attorney David Joffe has this level of experience and the knowledge it takes to defend aggressively against all charges of bank fraud.
