Fraud charges have become increasingly common in Canada. Different from theft, fraud is defined as a dishonest act where the accused knowingly and deliberately deceives another for their own benefit or gain.
Fraud can take many forms and common examples include credit card, charity, insurance, mortgage or real estate fraud as well as internet fraud. Similar to theft charges, fraud is also separated by under $5000 and over $5000. No matter the circumstance, fraud charges need to be taken seriously, because if you are convicted of fraud, this conviction has the power to ruin your life.
Factors determining a criminal fraud conviction include the complexity of the deceit, the number of victims affected and if the accused was in a position of power or trust when the act was committed. A fraud conviction will subject you to fines, restitution and in many cases jail time. Fraud charges also threaten your employment, financial security, and your family’s future wellbeing.
