If you have been charged with a corporate or financial fraud offence, our knowledgeable fraud lawyer in Sydney can assist you in understanding your options and how to best navigate the legal process.
Fraud can be alleged in many ways, but there are always fundamental elements that have to be proved by the prosecution.
A simplistic explanation of fraud is that a person either, obtains a financial advantage or benefit by way of money or property, or causes another person a disadvantage, and achieves this through dishonesty and deception.
Corporate & Financial Fraud in Sydney NSW
The courts take financial and corporate fraud offences extremely seriously because of the planning that is inevitably present to commit the fraud and often the breaches of trust, especially where there is an employer/employee relationship. Therefore, it is essential that you seek the legal advice of an experienced Sydney corporate fraud lawyer to best understand your options.
Examples of frauds could be:
- Changing a refund document so the money goes to an account other than the person who is genuinely entitled to it.
- Submitted an insurance claim for property stolen in a burglary when there was no burglary, and nothing was taken.
- Claiming Centrelink payments when there is no genuine entitlement or claiming more than a person is entitled to.
