Are You Facing Fraud Charges In Scranton? Skilled Legal Help Is Available.
If you intentionally conceal or alter information in an attempt to defraud a victim of something that either belonged to them or is rightfully owed to them, you have committed a fraud crime. There are so many ways to commit fraud today that many people could be unaware that what they are doing is actually illegal. Combined with the fact that fraud crimes rarely have any violence involved, they are often considered to be a “white collar crime,” and schemes have become very common.
