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.
