Fraud Attorney in Miami
Types of Fraud
There are many types of fraud including credit or debit card fraud, insurance fraud, Medicare fraud, and mortgage fraud. Credit cards can include ATM cards, bank cards, check cards and any other card related to a financial transaction.
While there are multiple ways to commit insurance fraud (see Florida Statute 817.234), generally insurance fraud involves an individual making a false claim, misrepresenting actual injuries or damages and attempting to receive compensation. Both state and federal task forces are constantly on alert and taking action to identify those who are involved in defrauding health and other insurance companies, and the state and federal government.

Mortgage fraud generally involves a misrepresentation or false statements on mortgage documents or other legal documents involved in procuring a mortgage (see Florida Statute 817.545 for additional details). Due to the recent uptick in the number of mortgage fraud cases, financial transactions involving banks and mortgages have come under even more scrutiny both at the state and federal levels.
Depending on the facts, circumstances, and dollar amounts, fraud can be classified as a misdemeanor or a felony. If you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges, if you have been accused of being involved in a fraudulent activity, or if you are being investigated for engaging in a fraudulent activity such as mortgage fraud or insurance fraud, you need the help of a knowledgeable and aggressive lawyer from the firm.
