Bank Fraud Laws

What is Bank Fraud?

What is Bank Fraud? Bank fraud is the use of dishonest schemes to get cash, possessions, or other belongings owned or held by a financial organization, or to get cash from depositors by deceptively representing to be a bank or financial organization. In most cases, bank fraud is a criminal offense. Due to the nature of the scheming and planning involved in bank fraud it is considered a white-collar crime.

How to report bank fraud?

Case Details: I believe actions of bank fraud have been made on my account.

If you are concerned about possible bank fraud involving one of your accounts, it is important to take action immediately. You should do as many of the following as possible:

  • Inform the bank in person or by making a phone call if you think an action of bank fraud has been performed.
  • Send a letter by certified mail. This would provide written documentation of the individual statement with the bank.
  • Get in touch with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The FTC gathers bank fraud and additional customer fraud grievance and makes them accessible to in excess of one thousand six hundred public and illegal law enforcement organizations in the U.S. and abroad.
  • Make a telephone call to the local police department. Give the bank, FTC or police force officials every piece of data that you have on the charged bank fraud.

Bank fraud is not uncommon, when an individual has committed bank fraud, there are many questions that may run through their mind. You can get any questions you have answered by the Experts.

What is the statute of limitations on bank fraud from the date the government knows of the offense?

Additional Questions: Does that time still apply if the USDOJ is aware of it, how long does the USDOJ have to prosecute it?

The statue of limitations is 10 years. It starts when the crime is committed and is only paused if the individual leaves the country. This timeframe pertains even if the United States Department Of Justice (USDOJ) is not aware of the crime.

What is the minimum and maximum sentence for federal bank fraud charges for under sixty thousand dollars?

Bank fraud being a federal offense has the same penalty in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The maximum fine is $1,000,000.00 and up to 30 years in prison is the maximum sentence for bank fraud. Naturally, zero would be the minimum, but there is no set minimum, technically one could get probation.

Can a person with a felony recordf for bank fraud get a gun permit in the state of New York?

Under federal law, no individual that has a felony conviction can have possession of a gun. Therefore, if the individual has a felony conviction, it is not officially feasible for the individual to obtain firearm consent in New York or all other states.

What happens if someone commits bank fraud and leaves the state where the crime was committed?

Bank fraud is a federal offense controlled by federal law enforcement authorities. A warrant would be issued for the individual’s arrest. Regardless of their location, federal agents would arrest them and bring them back.

Can someone convicted of bank fraud be the CEO of a public company?

In many cases this could be possible, if the public corporation would have that individual. The board of directors of a public company makes the decision on the Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Recent Bank Fraud Questions

  • For Joey_JD

    For Joey_JD please Hi Fran, it's me OCD girl with some new questions. Short answers will suffice. A) In your professional opinion could you tell me any reasons why the new jersey case could still be open after I had been to court, did what they told me and my lawyer took me out to celebrate. I know you don't have a crystal ball and I know it will only be a guess but would you mind hazarding one. B) If I get convicted of a misdemeanor like the New York Theft thingie would I definitely then go to jail for the simple assault? (The new york crime would have probably have been committed before the NJ false accusation)  C) If I get convicted in Germany of criminal defamation (would not get jail just a fine - I checked) would that automatically mean jail also? D) If I get probation and then get convicted of one of the things mentioned in B) and C) would that automatically then mean jail for the simple assault. E) Is Perjury considered a strike in the three strike law? F) Is a strike from another country considered a strike in the USA? I know these are stupid questions and I should not dwell but I am trying to get closure. A real quick answer to each one would be much appreciated. Thank you
