You can face fraud charges if it is believed that your made a false representation
and claimed that it was a fact, either by words or by conduct, by making
misleading allegations, or by concealing something that should have been
disclosed, and it is believed that you did so with the intention to deceive
another so that that the individual would act upon the information and
it resulted in a legal injury (financial). This can include everything
from forging a document or entering false information on a credit application,
to using checks or credit cards that belong to someone else.
The penalties for fraud can be severe and will depend upon the type of
fraud charge that you face. For example, check forgery and credit card
fraud are felony offenses, and can be punishable by up to 2 years in prison.
Fraud charges for identity theft vary based on the number of items involved,
with a charge of less than 5 items being classified as a state jail felony
and carrying penalties of 180 days to 2 years in a state jail, and/or
a fine of up to $10,000. More than 5 items would carry a penalty of 2
to 10 years in prison and could be filed as a third-degree felony. A convicted
felon faces an uncertain future, with many difficulties.
