North Carolina readers know that facing criminal charges of any kind can be daunting and frightening. You know that your future is at stake in many ways, but a conviction or guilty plea is never your only option. You have the right and the option to present a strong defense, no matter the nature of the case against you.

If you are facing fraud charges, you would be wise to take your case seriously. You may feel tempted to downplay the serious nature of your case, but a conviction of a white-collar crime could result in time behind bars and a myriad of other consequences. It is prudent to fight fraud charges and actively work to protect your future interests.

What you should know when facing fraud charges

Fraud is a general term used to encompass various different types of criminal behavior. Fraud always involves a financial element, most often acting deceptively in order to achieve financial gain. People facing charges of fraud often deal with accusations of misrepresentation, lying, giving false statements or deceiving others in order to obtain something valuable. There are various different types of fraud, and some of them include the following:

  • Mail fraud
  • Wire fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Credit or debit card fraud
  • Telemarketing fraud
  • Securities fraud
  • Bankruptcy fraud

The severity of the charges against you and the consequences you could face if convicted depend largely upon the details of your individual case. Regardless of the details of your individual situation, it is always appropriate to confront the charges against you.

If convicted, there are more than just criminal penalties at stake. You could face repercussions that will ultimately impact your career, future employment opportunities and your reputation. With a strong defense, you may be able to preserve your future interests and shield yourself from the intangible ways that a conviction of fraud charges could negatively impact your life.

The defense guidance you deserve

It's normal to feel overwhelmed when facing criminal charges. You may feel frightened and confused, but you do not have to fight fraud charges on your own. With experienced guidance, you can effectively defend yourself, challenge the case against you and present evidence that supports your defense.

Fraud charges are always serious, and you can take the initial steps of building a strong defense by reaching out for help as soon as possible after an arrest. You can even seek guidance if there are no formal charges yet you believe you are under investigation.
