Federal Bank Fraud Defense Lawyer

The occasional telling of a little white lie or a distortion of the truth is common and generally accepted in today’s society. Sometimes the truth is bent to protect feelings or to maintain certain perceptions. In the eyes of most people, these types of alterations of the truth are harmless and carry with them few if any consequences. When banks review loan and mortgage applications, however, they may see things differently, often considering these types of indiscretions to be fraud.

Serious Legal Representation For Serious Federal Charges

If you have been questioned by a federal investigator about a loan or the accuracy of a financial application at a bank or mortgage lender, you may be under investigation for bank fraud. Call the Law Offices of Anthony B. Cantrell in San Antonio or New Braunfels to start protecting your rights as quickly as possible.

Common bank fraud charges often involve:

  • Lying on an application for a loan
  • Buyers taking out a second mortgage to cover the down payment of the initial loan without the lenders knowledge
  • Investors engaging in a process known as equity skimming by using a false credit report, and a non-existent or straw buyer to acquire property in the straw buyer’s name

Times Are Changing

Mortgage fraud is a crime that has not been pursued until fairly recently, due in large part because it is difficult to prove whether or not someone intentionally left pertinent information off of their application.
