Bank Fraud Charges And Their Intersecting Legal Issues

Bank fraud is a broad term that encompasses a wide array of criminal activities. These crimes can also result in civil penalties; a bank may pursue damages for fraud through the civil system. Additionally, an individual may choose to bring a civil action against a bank for errors and losses.

With any bank fraud case, civil and criminal cases may overlap and affect one another. For example, a defendant who pleads guilty to bank fraud charges may expose him or herself to damages in a civil suit by the bank to obtain a reduced sentence.
