Defending Against Fraud Charges In NYC
Fraud is intentional wrongful or criminal deception for financial or personal gain. Some examples of fraud charges are bank fraud like mortgage fraud and credit card fraud, and identity fraud charges which are also known as identity theft.
Mortgage Fraud – Following the mortgage crisis that began in 2008, revealing the improprieties of banks and mortgage lenders nationwide, we have seen a huge uptick in the number of cases targeting average New Yorkers instead of the lenders responsible. In order to avoid the most severe penalties and to have the best chance of charges being dropped, you need an experienced New York City mortgage and bank fraud attorney on your side.
It’s important to know that you can be charged with fraud even if the mortgage company was aware that the provided information was false and/or their employees assisted you in providing untrue information. Additionally, if all but one tiny piece was true, or your loan was denied, you can still be charged. These charges cover a vast spectrum, and having a knowledgeable NYC bank and mortgage fraud attorney to help you navigate your situation will give you a much better chance of fighting back.
There are a few scenarios typical to mortgage fraud cases. Application fraud occurs when incorrect or inaccurate information is presented as fact in order to obtain loans. Fraudulent appraisals provide inaccurate information regarding home value, as well as the usage of a straw buyer in order to hide the identity of the true buyer are both also commonly seen. New York City mortgage fraud attorney, Maryam Jahedi, is well versed in every possible scenario and will build the strongest possible case for you.
Credit Card Fraud – Other bank fraud charges could be credit card or debit card fraud. Credit card or debit card fraud are forms of identity theft that involve unauthorized taking of another person’s credit card or debit card information for purposes of charging purchases to the account or removing funds from the account by other means.
Identity theft is unlawful use of someone else’s personal identification information such as name, social security number, driver’s license, bank and credit card account information.
