If I use someone’s credit card, am I committing fraud?

The laws in Ohio and across the country regarding credit fraud and theft are very clear. Unauthorized use of a person’s credit card is illegal and a white-collar crime. You may have a history of using that person’s card with his or her permission. However, the one time you use that credit card information without the owner's permission could result in you facing criminal charges that can have an adverse impact on your life. 

Weighing the expense of a white collar conviction

Many people who commit white collar crimes believe they will never be caught. It often comes as a surprise when law enforcement does catch them — and it is even more surprising to face the potential consequences that will follow. If you are facing charges such as these, it is important to consider your next step and weigh the long-term costs that could result from a conviction.

What you should know about insurance fraud

Insurance fraud is a serious problem. The FBI reports that the annual cost of insurance fraud, non-health insurance, is about $40 billion per year. More law enforcement agencies are cracking down on potential perpetrators of insurance fraud. You should be aware that filing a false claim or attempting to get money from an insurance company under false pretenses is fraud.
