Fraud Crimes In Georgia
Fraud is generally considered a white collar crime because it involves deception rather than force, threat of force or a sudden snatching like other theft crimes. As a crime, it involves deception or misrepresentation to obtain someone else’s money or other assets. There are many different forms of fraud, differentiated by the means used to commit the crime or the subject matter. For example:
- Credit card fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Real estate fraud
- Identity theft
- Computer fraud
- Corporate fraud
- Collections fraud
These are a just a few of the possible types of fraud, but most forms of fraud are extremely serious. Even a first conviction of identity fraud, for example, could result in a decade in prison and $100,000 in fines.
Make sure you fight fraud charges aggressively.
