Federal Bank Fraud Charges

The Bank Fraud Statute is 18 U.S.C. § 1344. It states: Whoever knowingly executes, or attempts to execute, a scheme or artifice-

  1. to defraud a financial institution; or
  2. to obtain any of the moneys, funds, credits, assets, securities, or other property owned by, or under the custody or control of, a financial institution, by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises; shall be fined not more than $1,000,000 or imprisoned not more than 30 years, or both.

As you can see, it is a very serious crime. The Bank Fraud Statute criminalizes federally check-kiting, check forging, non-disclosure on loan applications, diversion of funds, unauthorized use of ATMs, credit card fraud, and other similar offenses. However, other crimes specifically cover money laundering, bribery, and passing bad checks. If you have been arrested for bank fraud or are under investigation for bank fraud, our team of New Jersey fraud defense lawyers can represent you in any federal court including Newark, Trenton and Camden.
