Bank, Credit Card or Mail Fraud Crimes Defense Lawyer

Financial fraud crimes are prevalent, especially with the high use of debit and credit cards for most monetary transactions. Using someone else’s credit, debit or bank account without their consent or opening an account in someone else’s name, are all examples of common financial fraud crimes. In addition, using the mail to obtain a fraudulent financial account can be a crime in and of itself. If you have been charged with bank, credit card or mail fraud, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side to fight your case.

Almost all financial fraud crimes are felonies in the state of Georgia. Unless less than $100 of value was stolen or used in a six-month period, most bank or credit card fraud crimes are felonies. This can result in years in prison and extensive fines. And as is the case with all felony convictions, your permanent record will be tarnished for life. It can be difficult to find gainful employment and may impact any application for housing or credit that involves a background check.

Fighting a Financial Fraud Charge

There are defenses that can be used to disprove a financial fraud charge and legal options to get a case dismissed. For a credit card or bank fraud charge to be valid, it must be proven that the defendant did not have consent to use the accounts, and they had intent to commit fraud. In some cases, miscommunication or a misunderstanding occurred, not necessarily a crime. In addition, law enforcement and the prosecution must adhere to certain rules. If these rules are not followed, the charges can be dismissed.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.

Attorney Brown resolved my case to my absolute satisfaction and did an excellent job. I highly recommend his services.
