Fraud Crimes in Georgia

Some common types of fraud crimes include identity theft; stealing credit card numbers; and email, internet, or telephone scams that trick people into providing bank account information and other sensitive information. Although the methods vary with the type of fraud, the overall goal is to use a lie or deception to obtain money or other assets.

Fraud crimes must involve factors such as:

  • An individual misrepresenting the truth

  • Knowingly providing inaccurate information

  • Intent to get a person to believe the lie

  • A loss suffered by the victim as a result of the deception

The penalty for a fraud conviction depends on several factors, including whether the charge is a misdemeanor or a felony, the value of the property, and any prior convictions. Penalties for conviction generally involve a prison sentence, fines, and possibly restitution to the victim. There are also lasting consequences for your life and reputation, limited opportunities for employment, and other issues.
