Need Help with a Fraud Arrest in NY or NYC?
There are many offenses involving fraud in New York and NYC, and Lisa Pelosi has a great deal of experience dealing with each type of fraud. Fraud in New York and NYC includes, but is not limited to:
- Insurance fraud
- Health care fraud
- Criminal diversion of prescriptions and prescription medications
- Bribery (not involving public servants)
- Residential mortgage fraud
- Bad checks
- Criminal impersonation
- Criminal usury
Forgery, just one example of fraud, occurs when a person falsely makes, completes or alters a written instrument. You could be guilty of the fraudulent crime of bribery if you promise your neighbor something in return for not telling the cable company you steal their service. That, of course, is a minor example. Writing bad checks is a fairly common form of fraud, while criminal usury is a problem as well. Criminal usury is the practice of charging exorbitant interest on purchases, loans, etc.
As in many other situations, the penalties for committing various types of fraud depend on the level charged and the leeway offered by a judge. Forgery in the third degree is a class A misdemeanor, while first-degree residential mortgage involving receipt of funds totaling over $1 million is a class B felony.
