Concord Fraud Attorney

According to the IRS in 2009 federal investigators reported the following real estate and mortgage fraud statistics. There were:

  • 336 investigations initiated
  • 250 prosecution recommendations
  • 215 indictments/informations
  • 184 convictions
  • 135 sentenced
  • 77.8% incarceration rate with an average of 35 months served

Do not become a statistic. If you are being investigated for or charged with fraud, contact the fraud attorneys in Concord at the Law Offices of Robert J. Beles. Our criminal law attorneys review the actions of investigators and work with forensic accountants and underwriting experts in order to expose weaknesses and questionable evidence against our clients building a strong fraud lawsuit in Concord. If fraud litigation in Concord is necessary, our experienced fraud attorney in Concord can take your case to court.

Throughout the Concord, El Cerrito, Brentwood, Livermore, Emeryville, and Union City area, we represent those accused of mortgage and real estate fraud. Real estate fraud is any false representation of a real estate transaction combined with intent to deceive. The FBI defines mortgage fraud as “any material misstatement, misrepresentation or omission relied upon by an underwriter or lender to fund, purchase or insure a loan.” Charges of breaking fraud laws include:

  • House flipping
  • Using straw buyers
  • Submitting fraudulent information on mortgage applications
  • Underwriting irregularities
  • Over-reporting income
  • Failing to report secondary residence

Understanding California fraud laws

It may mean the difference between having the charges and sentence against you reduced or dropped and spending years in prison. In a Concord fraud lawsuit, it is important to present the facts of the case and your story. You may not have been aware that you even committed fraud. There is an assumption of criminal intent by the prosecutor when that is not the case at all. Someone who is attempting to turn her financial situation around is not the same as someone committing fraud for property or fraud for profit.
