Have you been arrested for accounting fraud?
Accounting fraud is a type of theft crime that is committed when a person within a company, usually a small company, illegally takes company funds. This crime is very similar to the crime of embezzlement. However, when a person commits accounting fraud, he/she may tamper with the company’s financial records to conceal the theft of funds. When a person commits accounting fraud, he/she may tamper with company receipts, payroll, or deposits. When the theft is finally discovered, it is usually too late.
Fraud occurs when a person intentionally deceives a third party, which results in injury or financial loss for the third party. When a person commits fraud, his/her primary goal is to obtain money under false pretenses. This dishonesty is usually not exposed until way after the person has illegally obtained funds. Once a person has committed fraud, such as accounting fraud, he/she will be subject to criminal prosecution by the Florida law enforcement, district attorneys, and judges.
