Identity Fraud, Scams & Money

In the broadest sense, a fraud crime is an intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual. Defrauding people of money is presumably the most common type of fraud, but there have also been many fraudulent ‘discoveries’ in art, archaeology, and science. Fraud can be committed through many methods, including mail, wire, phone, and the internet (computer crime and internet fraud).

There are many more types of fraud like identity fraud, investment, investment, false accounting, corruption and money laundering. These usually involve showing that the money has been used for the specified type of business, office or government use, but in reality, it was used for illegal items or transactions.

Identity fraud is the use of another person’s identity in order to obtain money and goods. Usually involves the falsifying of identification documents.

Mail fraud is a crime in which the perpetrator develops a scheme using mail to defraud another of money or property.

Check Fraud is an unlawful act that involves making the illegitimate use of cheques in order to illegally acquire or borrow funds that do not exist within the account balance or account-holder’s legal ownership.

Counterfeit money is currency that is produced without the legal sanction of the state or government. Counterfeiting is the ultimate technology for people who want to get something for nothing.
