What Is Fraud?

Fraud is a deceptive act that is committed with the intent to deceive another person for financial gain. Fraud can take many forms, but it is always a criminal offense.

Types of fraud that are prosecuted in Indiana include:

  • Identity Theft: This occurs when someone unlawfully obtains and uses another person's personal information, such as their Social Security number, credit card details, or bank account information, to commit fraud or other criminal activities.
  • Credit Card Fraud: It involves the unauthorized use of someone's credit card or credit card information to make purchases or withdraw funds without their knowledge or consent.
  • Internet and Email Fraud: These types of fraud encompass a wide range of schemes conducted online, such as phishing, where criminals pose as legitimate organizations to trick individuals into revealing personal information, or online auction fraud, where fraudulent transactions occur on online marketplaces.
  • Investment and Securities Fraud: This refers to fraudulent practices in the financial markets, such as insider trading (trading securities based on non-public information), Ponzi schemes (using funds from new investors to pay returns to earlier investors), or pump-and-dump schemes (artificially inflating the price of a stock and then selling it for profit).
  • Insurance Fraud: It involves making false insurance claims to obtain compensation or benefits. This can include exaggerating losses, staging accidents, or submitting fraudulent documents.
  • Mortgage Fraud: This type of fraud occurs in the real estate industry and involves providing false information or omitting relevant details on mortgage loan applications to obtain financing or to deceive lenders.
  • Tax Fraud: It encompasses various fraudulent activities related to taxes, such as underreporting income, inflating deductions, or creating fictitious expenses to avoid paying taxes or obtain illegal refunds.
  • Healthcare Fraud: It involves deceptive practices within the healthcare industry, such as submitting false medical claims, billing for services not provided, or engaging in kickback schemes between healthcare providers and suppliers.
  • Charity Fraud: This occurs when individuals or organizations exploit people's generosity by misrepresenting charitable causes, diverting donations for personal gain, or creating fictitious charities.
  • Bank Fraud: It refers to fraudulent activities targeting financial institutions, such as forging checks, using counterfeit currency, or engaging in check-kiting (manipulating account balances by taking advantage of delays in check clearing).

Fraud can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the value of the stolen property. Additionally, if the offense involved multiple victims or perpetrators in more than one state or country, offenders could face federal criminal charges.

      "A friend recommended Adam Tavitas. I could not be more happy about that recommendation."
      Needed help with a case in Porter County Indiana. Being out of state I was a bit worried about having to return for court. A friend recommended Adam Tavitas. I could not be more happy about that recommendation. Adam responded to my call immediately, explained my options and provided easy payment options. The resolution of the case was my biggest concern and that worked out very well. Adam is the complete package, Responsive, Professional and cost effective. Hopefully I never need his help again but I definitely will keep his contact information for future issues. Thanks Adam!

      "Highly recommend Adam. His prices are reasonable and he wont nickle and dime you like other attorneys. He's fair, and looks out for you as a person. Thanks Adam!"
      Adam did exactly what he said he would and helped me with my felony traffic case to get my charges reduced, helped me avoid community service, and even helped me apply for a restricted driver's license so I can still drive until my suspension is up. He answers your texts/calls, provides great advice and thoroughly explains your charges and the course of action you'll take at court. He's a great criminal defense attorney. Highly recommend Adam. His prices are reasonable and he wont nickle and dime you like other attorneys. He's fair, and looks out for you as a person. Thanks Adam!

      "Very Impressed!"
      We recently hired Mr Tavitas to represent our son for a marijuana citation in Porter County. From our first phone call, it was clearly evident that he genuinely cared about our sons case. He was very upfront about the prospects of the case, the steps he would take and the approximate cost to us, which was very fair and reasonable. Mr Tavitas is incredibly accessible. If he misses your call, you will be getting a return call in a very short time. Being kept informed of everything going on in our case was very important to us and he delivered! Highly recommend Mr Adam Tavitas!
