In legal terms fraud refers to the intentional misrepresentation of material fact made by one person to another. In these cases the person committing fraud has knowledge that they are attempting to defraud another individual or entity. On the other hand, fraud can also be the intentional omission or intentional failure to state material facts, in which case the nondisclosure of such facts would make the statements misleading. In simple terms, fraud is the intentional deception made for personal gain, or to damage another individual.
Fraud is a criminal offense which often times carries harsh penalties for the accused. If you have been charged with fraud or any other white collar crime, I urge you to contact me at my firm, the Law Offices of Ryan E. Gilbert, LLC without delay. It's important to understand that often times a white collar crime investigation begins long before an arrest. Law enforcement and possibly federal officials may be already investigating a fraud case against you. In which case, they may already be collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses, and gathering damaging evidence in order to pursue a criminal conviction against you.
