Defining Fraud And Embezzlement
Fraud can encompass many types of crimes that involve deceiving others for money. These charges can range from securities fraud, trading stocks or insider trading to simply making false or misleading statements. Fraud charges can also involve mortgage or insurance fraud schemes. All fraud charges should be taken seriously because they can violate both state and federal laws.
Embezzlement involves taking money from someone that you owe something to, such as work hours. Employees can find themselves facing charges for taking money from their employers and hiding it in a personal account.
