What is Bank Fraud?
Bank fraud is a term used to describe various non-violent, white collar criminal offenses perpetrated against or by a bank, lien holder, or other financial institution. Bank fraud can occur when a person tries to obtain or secure funds, assets, or property held by a bank or financial institution by fraudulent means. It can also be a crime committed by a bank or individuals representing a bank, such as rogue trading or accounting fraud, where the bank falsifies information in order to appear financially stable, licensed, or secure to induce investment or deposit of funds by third parties.

Federal crimes are serious business with serious, life-altering consequences. The United States Department of Justice has a deep pool of resources and facilitation techniques which sometimes allow them to prosecute more vigorously than individual states.

In the Supreme Court decision Williams v. United States (1982), the Court held that certain check floating schemes rise to the level of making false statements to financial institutions. In response to that decision, Congress passed the Bank Fraud Statute (18 U.S.C. § 1344), which criminalizes various fraudulent activity relating to financial institutions.
