An example of a white-collar offense is fraud, since it involves financial misdeeds and does not involve violence or the threat of serious bodily injury.  In recent years, The Geller Firm has represented, and successfully defended, a significant number of bank fraud cases.

Bank Fraud

Bank fraud consists typically of filing a false loan document that overstates the offender’s income or assets, or who uses the funds for something other than the stated purpose.  Knowingly writing a check with insufficient funds in the account and cashing it at a bank is fraud.

Check kiting is a form of bank fraud whereby the offender has a check from one bank account and cashes it at a separate bank, knowing that the original account has insufficient funds. Of course, forging a signature on a check and cashing it is bank fraud as well.  Prison sentences for bank fraud can be up to 30 years and carry fines of up to $1 million.
