Federal Fraud Charges in Florida

The crime of fraud involves the false representation of a matter of fact, whether this misrepresentation is by word or by conduct, or by false or misleading allegations, or by concealing something that should have been disclosed – that deceives and is intended to deceive another individual or entity.

While fraud is an independent criminal offense, it appears in various forms but is almost always used for the purpose of gaining a legal advantage or accomplishing a specific crime.

There are many different forms of fraud that are investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), some of which include but are not limited to:

  • Telemarketing fraud
  • Nigerian Letter or "419" fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Health care fraud or insurance fraud
  • Ponzi schemes
  • Pyramid schemes
  • Credit card fraud
  • Investment fraud
  • Telemarketing fraud

Other common forms of fraud include various types of "white collar crimes," some of which include bankruptcy fraud, mortgage fraud, securities & commodities fraud, and much more, a majority of which are criminalized under the United States Code, which is the compilation of the federal laws of the United States.

For example, health care fraud is covered under 18 USC § 1347, which states that whoever knowingly defrauds a health care benefit program in connection with the delivery of health care benefits or services shall be fined or imprisoned for not more than 10 years or both.
