While many believe crimes always involve some aspect of physical violence, some crimes that result in the loss of large sums of money involve no physical violence – sometimes these are labeled as ‘white collar crimes’. Non-violent crimes can involve some degree of fraud, which is the intentional use of deceit a trick or some dishonest means to deprive another person of his or her money, property, or legal right. These crimes may result in a single individual or business losing large sums of money.
When the alleged fraud involves the use of interstate means of communication – mail, telephones, fax or the Internet – the federal authorities may become involved. If you or a business has been targeted for investigation or prosecution of a fraud offense, you need criminal defense attorneys who not only understand you and your business, but the law as well.
