FRAUD.... deliberate deception to secure unfair or unlawful gain.
If your a victim of fraud, you will be happy to know that the penalties are stiff for the convicted offender. Does the stiff penalty help you though? Not really. First, you still have to prove your case to the prosecutor in order for them to take it to court and get a conviction. You also have to pursue a path to get your stolen money back. In many cases that involves you having to pursue the offender in civil court as well as criminal.
