Bank fraud is a form of white collar crime that involves someone, generally facilitated by a bank employee, trying to obtain bank-owned or bank-managed property through fraudulent means. Bank fraud is also referred to as embezzlement because a bank employee was entrusted with funds that were used for his or her own financial gain. Sometimes the employee only uses the funds temporarily during a financial emergency and attempts to replace the funds at a later time either with their own financial resources or through other forms of bank fraud.
In some cases, bank fraud may be committed from external sources such as investment bankers, accountants, entrepreneurs, and attorneys. No matter how the crime was committed, bank fraud is always considered a serious crime. The trust of those putting money in the bank has been violated by careless actions of others. If you have been accused of bank fraud, it is important to seek legal counsel immediately.
