Miami Fraud Attorney
Types of Fraud
There are many types of fraud. The basic definition of fraud is an intentional deception in order to achieve some type of personal gain (usually financial, but not always) or to cause harm to another. For example, if an individual uses the credit card of someone without their authorization, representing themselves to be the rightful holder of that card, he is committing fraud. Credit card fraud, mortgage fraud, tax fraud, and insurance fraud are all various ways of creating a deception to get some gain. If you have been accused of any type of fraud you need the services of a Miami federal crimes attorney. Tax fraud on federal taxes would be a federal crime. Fraud can be classified as a state or federal crime and, depending upon the circumstances can be a misdemeanor or felony. Not all lawyers are experienced to handle both state and federal cases.
