What is Classified as a Fraud Crime?
All fraud crimes have one thing in common – using a lie or deception in an attempt to gain some sort of benefit. The state and the federal government have specific laws that make numerous types of fraud illegal and the circumstances surrounding the crime determine the penalties that may follow.
All of the following are considered illegal in New Mexico:
- Mail fraud: Any act of fraud that involves the U.S. Postal Service, such as sending dishonest letters in an attempt to collect money.
- Healthcare fraud: Commonly involves Medicare and Medicaid and often occurs when a healthcare company or individual provider tries to dishonestly collect government reimbursements.
- Securities fraud: Considered a federal offense, securities fraud involves a brokerage company or individual stockbroker deceiving clients with false information.
- Credit card fraud: Fraud that occurs when someone illegally uses another individual's credit card for their own gain.
Penalties for fraud crimes can include incarceration, probation, fines, and restitution to the victim. Prosecutors are aggressive in their attempts to convict alleged offenders and you should not take chances with the outcome of your case. Put our dedicated firm on your side!
