Fraud Charges in Nassau County
Nassau County Criminal Defense Lawyer
In a general sense, a person commits fraud when they make a misrepresentation or fail to disclose a material fact in order to induce another person to give up something of value. There are many different kinds of criminal fraud under both the laws of the State of New York and the federal government, and fraud can occur in a variety of circumstances.
Medicare/Medicaid fraud, mail/wire fraud, bank fraud, insurance fraud, credit card fraud, immigration fraud, and securities fraud are just a few of the many different offenses a person may be charged with, and a conviction of any of those crimes carries a possible prison sentence and large monetary fines.
