Types of Fraud
California fraud offenses are punishable by significant jail or prison sentences and costly fines. Many of these crimes are called “wobbler offenses,” meaning that they can either be charged as misdemeanors or felonies. However, there are fraud offenses that lead to automatic felonies. Typically, the punishment is based on the amount of money taken and how many victims were affected.
Common types of fraud include the following:
- Credit card fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Real estate and mortgage fraud
- Identity theft
- Pyramid schemes
- Charities fraud
- Securities fraud
- Check fraud
