Fraud Definition

Fraud is improper or criminal deception with the intent to profit financially or personally. Examples of fraud charges include larceny by conversion, embezzlement, healthcare fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud, false pretenses, conspiracy, etc. If the alleged fraudulent activity impacts interstate commerce or involves multiple states, the United States Attorney can file charges in federal court. In addition to jail or prison, a fraud conviction can severely limit someone’s employability, civil rights, eligibility to hold public office, and professional or medical license.
