Bank fraud involves using fraudulent means in order to take money, property or other assets from a financial institution, or to obtain money from individuals by posing as a legitimate financial institution or bank. This is a federal crime that is punishable by extensive fines and prison time, as well as other penalties such as reimbursement of the money that was obtained through these fraudulent means. The severity of the conviction penalties for bank fraud depends on a number of factors and many of the related circumstances.
While there are many different ways to commit bank fraud, one way is for an employee who has access to the bank’s various accounts to use their access in order to rearrange funds and to discretely take funds from these accounts; this is both theft and fraud.
