The Effects of Generalized Fraud
The unfortunate effects of fraud can be quite far-reaching, as there are numerous companies, groups, and individuals that suffer damages due to fraudulent practices. Fraud not only takes hard earned capital out of the pocket of other entities and individuals, but destroys the reputations, and levels of trust placed in another, potentially even damaging the ability to conduct business in an honest fashion in the case of commercial fraud.
Anyone who has personally been affected as a victim of fraud understands that the residual effects can be long-lasting. Those who are charged with fraud can see their entire careers destroyed, regardless of guilty or innocent legally. To put it simply, fraud is a serious issue and requires the consult and intervention of an experienced fraud attorney in order to ensure that the appropriate amount of justice is served.
Commercial Fraud Claims
Our firm has an immense amount of experience on both sides of the negotiating table in regards to commercial fraud claims. The term commercial fraud refers to deceptive actions or violations of the law by corporate executives and those in positions of power. Commercial fraud can include improper use of company money or assets, the falsification of public statements in an effort to manipulate stock, and other illegal behaviors like insider trading and taking outside commissions (kickbacks).
Regardless if you have been charged with a crime, or are the victim of a commercial crime, it is imperative in cases of this type that you seek the legal counsel and representation of a commercial fraud claims lawyer immediately. When a person is charged with commercial fraud, they have the right to consult with legal counsel prior to questioning by law enforcement, and therefore have the additional right of having an attorney present during any questioning. It is very important to protect your rights in cases of this nature as anything said during the period of questioning is fully admittable and will be used against you in a court of law.b
Commercial fraud can also be referred to as business fraud, though some legal professionals will make some distinction between the two. Business fraud is a reference to companies intentionally making false statements, engaging in deceptive or unethical practices, or makes false promises to provide products or services with no actual intention of following through. There is a broad depth of fraud occurrences, but there is one primary facet that defines a practice as the commitment of fraud. The entity has committed an act dishonestly.
If you have been a victim of business fraud, or are being accused of such actions, securing the services of a qualified and experienced commercial fraud claims attorney is a prudent idea, as is doing so as soon as possible. Your attorney will be able to analyze the situation, help strategize a plan of action, and defend your legal rights, pursuing justice, as well as your best interests in an optimal outcome of a case.
Commercial Fraud Claims Attorneys
The law treats fraud as a very serious issue, and if charged, or a victim of commercial fraud, so should you. If you have experienced a form of fraud in any way, you should contact an attorney to learn how the legal system is available to assist you.
The law in regards to fraud is viewed as both a criminal offense and as a solid bedrock for a civil liability claim. The action taken against an individual or entity for committing commercial fraud is outside what would normally constitute collections activities, efforts usually found under the heading of civil litigation. Fraudulent pursuits to the contrary, reside entirely within the territory of criminal law.
If you are an individual who believes that a business or individual has used one or more fraudulent practices in order to deceive you into an action that you otherwise would not have committed, you likely have the basis for a viable commercial fraud claim.
