Financial Fraud Related Questions

Financial fraud occurs when an individual takes funds while being entrusted by an employer or client. There are numerous ways to commit financial fraud. The most common act of financial fraud is to misappropriate funds. A good example of this would be to retain money from the client but itemize an expense report that showed the transaction took place. Another way would be to exaggerating payroll expenses. To learn more about financial fraud, take a look at the questions below that have been answered by Experts.

If a lender doesn't require document verification and a person commits financial fraud as a result, is the lender liable for damages resulting in the loan? My neighbor claims their property value decreased due to me buying my home and are blaming the lender for financial fraud.

There doesn't appear to be any evidence to show a neighbor can sue lenders for allowing mortgages in a neighborhood, therefore decreasing the property value of the entire area. However, if your neighbor has valid evidence that the lending company somehow breached a duty toward the neighbor, then the lender may be liable for damages. This is just in theory, and the neighbor would have to show the lender had a duty to the neighbor by preventing the property value of the entire neighborhood to decrease based on the lenders predatory loan practices. Proving this is going to be extremely hard because the lender isn't obliged by any contractual duty. This makes it impossible to take legal action against the lender.

Is Mondail West Financial Services a mail scam or financial fraud?

This financial service isn't listed with the Better business bureau and all searches turn up nothing about the company. It is very possible that the company is a scam attempting financial fraud. You should avoid all contact with this company. If they contact you wanting personal information, offer you something, but want you to pay before you receive, they are probably trying to commit financial fraud against you.

If a company is claiming that an individual committed financial fraud and the company as the individuals name, phone number, address and Social Security number; should the individual retain legal protection knowing this is a scam?

There is a very good chance this is a scam by individuals trying to commit financial fraud. Generally in scams such as this, the person will say the loan was approved via internet or by phone. The person will then make threats of having you arrested and charged with financial fraud if you don't send money immediately (usually by money wire or some other form of payment). You should contact your police department and the FBI.

In the state of Nevada, if an individual embezzled money from a company 2 ½ years ago and paid all the money back, can the company still press charges against the individual for financial fraud?

Nevada's statute of limitations is 3 years. There is still time for the company to press charges against you for financial fraud and/or embezzlement regardless of whether you repaid the money or not. Even if the company signed a release stating they wouldn't seek prosecution, the State still has the right to prosecute. Another thing you should consider; regardless of whether they have released you from civil prosecution, the company could notify any future employer of your actions, which could make it hard for you to find decent employment.

Financial fraud occurs on a large scale and can cause havoc on the person or company that has been affected. If you are faced with financial fraud charges or are a victim of financial fraud, you should ask an Expert for more reliable answers and information.

    I need an Alabama bankruptcy Attorney. My question is : I have run a successful business for over 20 years carrying two private disability policies since day 1. I need career ending surgery now but trying my best to postpone until May so I can sell my house which still has a substantial mortgage. IF I cannot sell my house (I have it listed 20% below 2014 appraisal) and close to pay off even if I get current asking price (it is over built for the neighborhood), I will have to file bankruptcy before I get my surgery (its an open heart spinal reconstruction for a congenital spine defect along with a recent Parkinson's diagnosis), I will never be able to go back to work, can the bankruptcy court garnish my PRIVATE or PUBLIC disability during or after a liquidation bankruptcy and in Alabama, you cannot keep even one car, I have a car that is owed more on it than it is worth that I would like to re-affirm (it has disability on the contract so the payments get paid) is that also possible?
