Types Of Financial Fraud

Financial fraud involves obtaining money or property from another person or organization with malicious intent and through use of false statements. The Jacksonville white-collar crime lawyers at Fallgatter & Catlin, P.A. often represent individuals charged with the following types of fraud:

  • Fraudulent securities handling: These cases, which normally begin with an investigation by the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC), include insider trading, fraudulent retail sales practices, stock manipulation and Ponzi schemes.
  • Improper use of records: When employees who have access to confidential data use that data for illegal purposes, they may face charges of improper use of records.
  • Money laundering: involves channeling illegally obtained funds through one or more accounts or dummy businesses to hide the original source of the funds.

A proactive defense is the best defense

As is true with any Jacksonville white-collar crime, financial fraud charges normally begin with an intensive investigation by the SEC or other legal authorities. It is not uncommon for representatives from these agencies to contact a person suspected of financial fraud to request an informational interview prior to levying charges.
