Charged with Bank Fraud?
Bank fraud is a
federal offense that the U.S. Attorney’s Office can prosecute to the full extent
of the law. Federal prosecutors can be relentless in pursuing those who
have been accused of defrauding financial institutions, meaning you face
imprisonment for many years if found guilty. You have a right to a legal
defense, however, and our skilled Miami federal crimes lawyers can defend
you no matter the details of your case to obtain a positive outcome for you.

What is bank fraud?
Bank fraud often times includes other charges such as mail or wire fraud
which can increase the potential consequences. It is imperative that you
speak with an attorney from Rothman & Associates, P.A. as soon as
you are arrested.
Illegal actions involved in typical bank fraud cases can include:
- Providing false statements
- Forging checks
- Loan fraud
- Falsifying loan documents or financial documents
- Other financial crimes involving a federally insured bank
One of the more common types of fraud perpetrated on financial institutions
involves loans or mortgage application fraud. When borrowers do not make
payments, banks review the applications and look for misstatements of
income or other misrepresentations.
Even if the vast majority of information you provided a bank was correct,
you can still be charged with bank fraud. A conviction can come with up
to 30 years in federal prison and up to $1,000,000 in fines, and these
penalties could be compounded if other forms of fraud were involved meaning
you could face potentially devastating penalties.
