TYPES OF FRAUDULENT PRACTICES

Deceptive practices, which are also known as fraud, are defined in Illinois state law (720 ILCS 5/17-1) as deceiving another individual or entity with the intention of obtaining a document, property, or assets from the victim. There are countless different forms of fraud that can be committed, some of which include:

  • Bank fraud
  • Check fraud
  • Consumer fraud
  • False impersonation
  • False advertising
  • Healthcare fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Mortgage fraud

These deceptive and fraudulent practices can cause a victim to lose money, property, or even their identity. That is why the crime can range from a Class A misdemeanor to a Class 4 felony, with jail sentences ranging from 6 months to 3 years and a fine of up to $25,000.

WHY YOU NEED A LAWYER

Anyone charged with a form of fraud will need the skilled representation of a Chicago criminal defense lawyer right away. An attorney will have the skill and knowledge to present a strong defense and prevent a conviction leading to severe penalties. Fraud has other consequences, as well. If convicted, you will be highly unlikely to obtain a position of trust or responsibility over finances in the future. That is why it is so important to prevent a conviction by retaining aggressive defense.
