Federal Prosecution for Bank Fraud Crimes
Bank fraud is a white collar crime where a person intentionally and knowingly
carries out a scheme to defraud a financial institution – through
the use of fraudulent means to obtain money, property, and other assets
that are owned or under the control of a bank or other financial institution.
Mail and wire fraud, falsifying documents, forging checks, and even counterfeiting
bank documents are several ways to commit bank fraud.
Unlike many forms of fraud, bank fraud is defined as illegal under U.S.
federal legislation, which means that these offenses will be under investigation
by federal authorities and prosecuted under federal law instead of state
law. Under federal law, bank fraud is punishable by a maximum prison sentence
of 30 years and a fine of up to $1,000,000.
