Fraud And Other White Collar Crimes

Fraud is a type of crime that involves knowingly deceiving a person, business or government entity, or making false statements that affect those entities. In fraud cases, this lying or purposeful concealing of the truth is for financial gain. These cases are treated seriously by prosecutors and judges, often resulting in harsh punishments upon conviction.
