Fraud’s Open Definition & Defenses

The act of fraud is broadly defined as any deliberate act to deceive, mislead, or misinform another party in an attempt to collect funds or favors, typically without any act or threat of violence. This definition is clearly open for some interpretation, as it is meant to be. By keeping the legal statute somewhat vague, the criminal justice system can bring the charges against a greater number of potential offenders.

In order to defend yourself from fraud accusations, you must pay close attention to the details. Financial records, business dealings, email communications, and much more can come in handy when making your defense case. Your aim and the goal of your attorney will be to prove either that any alleged actions did not take place, or that the actions that did occur were entirely acceptable.
