Minnesota Mortgage Fraud

Investigating mortgage fraud in Minnesota is a top priority for the FBI and its Financial Crimes unit. Mortgage fraud can be committed in several different ways: Misstating or misrepresenting facts to obtain the loan, and omitting important information relating to the mortgage itself.

The fraudulent act could be committed against a financial institution or against the seller of a home who agrees to take part of the down payment as a loan to the buyer.

Insurance Fraud in Minnesota

Insurance fraud can occur when people apply for insurance, when third parties sell policies, or when a claim is filed. For example, some people inflate the value of a property they own to lower the premium. Other people will try to inflate the cost of repairing damage to their vehicle after an accident and pocket the difference or split it with the mechanic who agreed to participate.

We are Minneapolis criminal defense attorneys and St.Paul criminal defense attorneys.

Credit Card Fraud

The law generally defines credit card fraud as the unauthorized and knowing use of a credit card to acquire money, goods, services or the property of another person. Credit card fraud in Minnesota can take many different forms. For instance, if somebody buys a pair of shoes using someone else’s card without their permission, it is credit card fraud. Another example is making false statements about income or outstanding debt when applying for a credit card.

Penalties for a Fraud Conviction

A court has a number of penalties available to it when somebody is convicted of fraud:

  • Incarceration in jail or prison
  • Forfeiting of property
  • Making restitution to the victim
  • Probation
