FRAUD AS A FEDERAL CRIME
Fraud is an extremely general term for a plot devised to take advantage of others. Fraud is a criminal act that federal courts in Dallas / Fort Worth (and nationwide), have substantial authority over.
The US federal government has the power–and the funds–to go after anyone they suspect of fraudulent activity. Expect a rigorous investigation from the FBI, CIA, or DEA, etc., and a grueling prosecution process if faced with fraud charges.
In many cases of suspected fraud, one must consult “case law,” laws that have been established by the outcome of former cases, to help determine what constitutes fraud. Imagine standing before a judge and jury who have a very broad understanding of the term fraud and defending yourself against whatever evidence has been brought against you.
Get the help of an experienced fraud attorney to help you sort through charges and demonstrate your innocence.
There are several different forms of fraud that can lead to a conviction. Fraud can be committed as an employee, a consumer, or as a a public citizen. Some fraud charges may be accompanied with other criminal charges, such as theft or additional white collar crimes.

With a conviction of a federal crime on your record, you can imagine that your chances to regain employment, housing, or credit are severely compromised. Your life can feel like it has been put on hold while you sit in a federal corrections facility.
If you’ve had a fraud charge brought against you, be proactive to minimize the damage on your reputation and future.
