Loan fraud or mortgage fraud, occurs when an individual intentionally misrepresents or falsifies information in a loan application for a mortgage or any type of bank loan. The prosecution must show that the defendant did so with the intent that the lender would rely on this fraudulent information to approve the loan. Anyone seeking a loan such as a homeowner, buyer, seller, broker, real estate agent, or lender may be charged with loan fraud. Most importantly, the loan does not need to be funded for a person to be charged with this criminal offense.
If you are facing charges or are under investigation for loan or mortgage fraud, it is important to consult a Orange County Criminal Defense Attorney soon as possible. Without a defense attorney at your side, it is easy to unintentionally incriminate oneself or take the blame for another simply by trying to cooperate with law enforcement.
Loan fraud cases are often handled by federal investigators, such as the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) and thus an individual will need an Orange County Defense Lawyer who is experienced in handling Federal Crime cases as well as Fraud Crimes. Even if you are innocent of the charges, making a false statement to a Federal Investigator during the investigation is a separate crime in and of itself. Federal cases are handled differently than a state criminal case, and the Federal court process is unique. Only a lawyer experienced with Federal criminal cases will be able to provide you with the best possible defense.
