The attempt or act of using deceit to take another’s services, money, or property is called fraud. Fraud often falls under the general category of “white collar crime” because these offenses are frequently committed by a business person or during business relations between a client and service provider, an employee and employer, or between family members. Because of the current economic state, investigators are energetic in locating and prosecuting individuals who use misrepresentation to gain financially. In their zeal to bring charges, their investigation may connect innocent persons to fraudulent activity. If you or a loved one have been charged with fraud in the state of Texas, contact experienced Houston fraud defense attorney Ed Chernoff today for a free consultation about your case.

Common Fraud Crimes in Federal and Texas State Courts

Fraudulent schemes can be simple or very complex. Sometimes business ventures or investment activities are so complicated it may only appear a theft scheme has been attempted. In some cases, documents have been altered so that it appears to an investigator that the person who signed the agreement was a party to some conspiracy. Untangling such situations to expose the truth and flaws in the prosecution’s case depends solely on having a knowledgeable fraud crimes lawyer protecting your interests. Some types of fraud an individual or a business might face in federal or state courts may be related to the following activities:

  • Mortgage fraud
  • Loan origination
  • Mortgage brokering
  • Bank documents
  • Computer hacking
  • Insurance sales
