THEFT CRIMES IN FLORIDA – FRAUD
With Florida’s economy faltering, more fraudulent enterprises are being discovered and more Federal and State resources are being provided to law enforcement to investigate, arrest and prosecute those engaged in criminal fraudulent activity. As a result of the government’s aggressive action toward fraud, innocent businesses and individuals are being targeted for fraud investigations and arrests.
Fraud Covers a Wide Range of Theft Crimes in Florida
Fraud can be a criminal offense and can also result in civil damages. The most common fraudulent scheme and the one most often prosecuted is one where people are defrauded of money.
Mortgage Fraud and Marriage Fraud
There is a direct correlation between foreclosures and elevated mortgage fraud levels. Since Florida led the nation in foreclosures over the last three years, it isn’t surprising that Florida led the nation with $260 Million in mortgage fraud last year.
Today investigators and prosecutors are scrutinizing real estate brokers, mortgage lenders and their employees, appraisers and investors.
If you’re under investigation for mortgage fraud and you are accused of any of the following…
- using a false appraisal,
- improperly inflating your income or assets,,
- filingmultiple claims for homestead exemption,
- your liabilities and debts weren’tnot fully disclosed or were altered,
