Fraud Defense

3 Decades of Combined Legal Experience

Fraud can be considered a broad umbrella term in Georgia. Forgery, credit card fraud, identity fraud, cheque fraud, and deposit fraud are all related but separate charges. Fraud is the use of dishonest and deceitful tactics to get something of value. These “crimes of moral turpitude” carry heavy penalties including fines and substantial jail time. 

The Arora Law Firm has over 3 decades of combined legal experience. We have defended clients from allegations and charges of multiple different fraud charges (in multiple State and Federal courts). An allegation or charge related to fraud needs to be handled by a competent legal team. Contact us today to set up a consultation.


Deposit Fraud

Deposit fraud usually occurs when a person knowingly uses a bad check even if the account behind the check is closed or does not have sufficient funds. Being convicted of this charge can result in severe punishment depending on the value defrauded. If a bad check is written worth more than $500 then it can be punished with a felony charge and up to 3 years in jail. 

Identity Fraud

If a person willfully uses someone else’s identifying materials in order to defraud them or someone else. This might include identifying materials like a social security number or other personal identifying information. This is a very serious charge to face. A first-time offense can be met with up to $150,000 in fines and 10 years in jail. Identity Fraud is a felony offense.

Credit Card Fraud

Georgia law prohibits many actions regarding credit cards and their fraudulent use. Stealing a credit card, using a credit card that you knew is stolen, creating a fraudulent credit card or defrauding someone else’s valid credit card, are all felony crimes that fall under the umbrella term of Credit Card Fraud. A person could face thousands of dollars in fines and multiple years in prison for these actions if convicted.
