Fraud is legally defined as a deliberate deception that is used to acquire an unlawful profit. Fraud crimes are criminal acts in which a person uses dishonest means for the purpose of attaining an advantageous gain. Before a person can be charged with a fraud crime in California, the prosecution must be able to prove 5 separate factors:

• the dishonest statement of a fact
• that the defendant was aware the statement was dishonest
• that the defendant had an intention to deceive the victim
• that the victim’s accusations are reliable
• that the victim sustained injury (usually financial) as a result of the defendant’s dishonesty

These factors can be very difficult for most prosecutors to prove, and will vary substantially from case to case. If prosecutors succeed in proving that the defendant committed a fraud crime, and the defendant is found guilty, he/she will face numerous legal consequences which can include: jail time, monetary fines, restitution, community service, and probation. These legal consequences can complicate the defendant’s life and lead to future problems when the defendant tries to obtain employment and housing.

There are many types of fraud crimes that range from misdemeanors to felonies. Most criminal acts involving fraud are considered white collar crimes. Common California fraud crimes are:
