All-Inclusive Defense For Cases Involving Forgery And Financial Transaction Card Fraud

Georgia authorities actively seek to detain and prosecute people suspected of financial transaction cards, including bank cards, credit cards and other identity theft activities as a result of substantial complaints by individuals and businesses.

The penalties for these types of white collar crime charges are serious. Each offense breaks into multiple degrees such as first, second, third and fourth degrees. Each degree requires certain elements to be met, and therefore have varying tiers of penalties.

Fines and imprisonment are likely if you are convicted of:

  • Bank fraud
  • Identity theft and fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Tax fraud

There are many aspects to fraud and forgery cases that need to be addressed by a competent attorney. In its simplest terms, fraud typically involves a false representation.

With the growth of technology and the expansion of the Internet, identity theft is one of the most frequently committed crimes. Identity fraud can also be committed by a person who receives fake identification information that they knows is fake or stolen.

A person can face up to ten years in prison and also required to pay thousands of dollars in fees and restitution to the victim. If you have been accused of identity theft, you have so much to lose.

Do not increase your risk of loss by not hiring an experienced attorney to handle your case. Please contact my law office immediately so we can establish your defense.

Insurance fraud occurs when an insurance policyholder or service provider attempts to collect insurance payments that they would not otherwise be entitled to receive. For example:

  • Filing fraudulent claims
  • Faking losses
  • Intentionally causing losses through arson, theft or other means
  • Negotiating contracts, or collecting premiums as an agent without authorization to do so
  • Unauthorized fixing of insurance rates

As punishment, a person convicted of insurance fraud will be guilty of a felony and serve time in prison ranging from two to 10 years and/or forced to pay a fine of up to $10,000.

The penalties are harsh, which makes your defense that much more important. I can provide you the defense you need and deserve, plus fight to reduce the potential consequences you may face. Give The Law Office of Timothy McCalep a call today at 404-692-7525, or reach out to me online.
