A criminal offense of fraud involves intentional acts of deception through misrepresentation of facts by one or more individuals for the purpose of financial gain, to obtain benefits which they are otherwise not entitled, to deprive others of their property or assets, or to receive other types of privileges, compensation, or services which the accused would not have received if the true facts were disclosed.
Fraud may also be made by an omission or purposeful failure to state material facts, which nondisclosure makes other statements misleading. In short, omitting relevant facts is just as liable as manufacturing facts which are untrue.
Any form of fraud is considered a serious criminal offense, as fraud makes a direct impact upon the economy of the United States. Those who are facing fraud charges will face aggressive prosecution and therefore should immediately seek the legal advice and representation of legal counsel.
It is important to state that in order for the prosecution to obtain a conviction in a criminal fraud case, it must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt any alleged act deception was intentional.
