What Is a Fraud Crime?

There are a variety of offenses that constitute fraud. Fraudulent intent is used to deceive another person or entity to the point where the victim suffers a loss and the criminal benefits. For example, anyone caught taking another person's personal identifying information for use in an unlawful manner, such as obtaining credit, goods, or services, can be charged with fraud.

Check fraud also involves the intent to defraud a payee by presenting a check as genuine, while forgery, involves altering, creating or using false documents, including ID cards, legal documents, security clearance cards, credit cards, driver’s licenses, and personal checks. Forgery is usually committed for financial gain and can potentially be a federal offense.
