Accused of Fraud in Memphis?
Consulting with a Memphis White Collar Crime Attorney
A person commits fraud when he or she intentionally uses misrepresentation of important facts in order to deceive others and obtain a certain outcome that causes others to experience loss (usually financial loss). In addition to providing false information, fraud can be committed through an omission of important facts. Examples of fraud include submitting a false insurance claim in order to receive money, or intentionally failing to disclose certain information on tax forms.
