The Help You Need to Fight Allegations

Additionally, the punishments are severe and can affect you for years. You may face prison time, fines, and collateral consequences that make it challenging to live your life as you once did.

Aggressive Defense for Bank Fraud Charges

Bank fraud is a type of theft crime that occurs when someone knowingly uses deception to obtain something of value from a financial institution or its customers. Although some instances involve a person using fraudulent pretenses to get money from a bank, not all offenses are cash-related.

Obtaining or attempting to obtain any of the following is also a crime:

  • Credit
  • Loans
  • Assets
  • Securities

The institution from which the types of assets listed above are fraudulently obtained does not have to be a bank for the offense to be considered bank fraud. Engaging in a scheme or artifice to defraud a credit union or other federally insured financial institution can be prosecuted under 18 U.S.C. § 1344 (the federal bank fraud statute).

Financial transactions often require various forms to be filled out accurately, which means that if a person makes a mistake, they could find themselves subject to bank fraud accusations. At Hager & Schwartz, P.A., our Miami defense attorneys know how harshly the government prosecutes these matters, and that innocent people can find themselves subject to an investigation. That is why we work diligently to uncover the facts of the case and present a compelling defense on behalf of the accused. We will fight aggressively for you and work toward a favorable outcome in your case.

What Are the Penalties for Bank Fraud?

As mentioned before, a conviction for bank fraud carries steep penalties.

The punishments include:

  • A fine of up to $1,000,000, and/or
  • A prison term of up to 30 years
