Dallas Fraud Crimes and Penalties
The Texas criminal justice system has some very harsh penalties for fraud crimes. Fraud is defined as any activity where an individual intentionally deceives or misleads another or gives knowingly false information in order to get something of value from the victim.
Examples of fraudulent activities are:
- Mail fraud
- Internet fraud
- Bank fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Identity theft
- Credit card fraud
- Mortgage fraud
While fraud is not treated as severely as some theft crimes and most are misdemeanors, certain fraudulent crimes are felonies. Many felony fraud convictions have sentences of anywhere from 6 months to 20 years or more in jail as well as up to $10,000 in fines.
