Fraud charges and cases can be extremely complex, as fraud – the unlawful practice of purposefully deceiving a person or organization for financial gain or in order to damage them – can be manifested in a number of different ways.
While some types of fraud can be committed when the alleged perpetrators come face-to-face with the victim, others can occur through more remote means, such as through letters, emails or use of the Internet. When fraud charges are filed, the resulting investigation and trial can be particularly prolonged, as investigators may have to sift through stacks of computer, bank or phone records and other documentation for even the most minor of fraud charges.
What can be even worse than the drawn out, invasive legal process associated with fraud investigations is the possibility of having to serve long prison sentences, pay expensive fines, have a criminal record haunt you and possibly even having to face another court case (in civil court if the victim chooses to file a civil case and seek damages) if the accused is convicted in criminal court.
