With the increased incidence of bankruptcy filings, there has been an increased incidence of bankruptcy fraud. This crime involves concealing assets or multiple bankruptcy filings in different states. When someone applies for bankruptcy in a fraudulent manner, it is most often reported by neighbors or business associates who know about the filing and continue to observe extravagant living by the accused.
Concealing assets during a bankruptcy filing may be suggested by the attorney facilitating the bankruptcy or someone else who knows about the bankruptcy. In addition to concealment of assets, other related criminal acts may be involved, including:
- Petition mills
- Multiple bankruptcy fraud filings in multiple states
- Making false statements
- Credit card fraud
- Identity fraud
