There are a number of different type of fraudulent acts that can occur. One of these is identity theft. This is a criminal act on the federal level, as well as the state level.

Know how your defense options impact your life now and later

Facing criminal charges of any sort can throw a wrench in the plans you made for your life. The difficulty of dealing with these situations is affected by the type of charge you face.

When others make investment decisions as a result of the misrepresented or omitted information, and they suffer financial damages, it could give rise to a securities fraud claim.

White collar crimes might include elderly victims

Fraud comes in many forms, but some cases put a very vulnerable population in danger. This occurs when the elderly are the victims. Some people hear that an elderly person was taken advantage of and they automatically think the worst of the person who is accused of the fraudulent activity. Of course, there can be more to the story than what meets the eye.
