The laws related to bank fraud are continually re-defined by South Carolina legislators and the United States Congress. Individuals who are accused of bank fraud may need a skilled bank fraud defense attorney who is up-to-date on the ways in which state and federal courts interpret these laws. The law firm of Christopher A. Wellborn, P.A., in York County has more than 25 years of experience defending against bank fraud allegations.
Suspicious bank activities that individuals may be accused of include Ponzi schemes, money laundering and issuing counterfeit documents or forged checks. Accusations of loan fraud can be made if a person is suspected of applying for fictitious loans, providing false information or basing a loan application on the information of a non-existing lender. Employee fraud, embezzlement and mortgage fraud may also form the basis of bank fraud accusations.
Such charges can put an individual’s reputation, freedom and livelihood on the line. Moreover, in some cases, normal transactions are misinterpreted and regarded as fraudulent. Chris Wellborn and his law firm aim to expose all the facts related to the case and explore the available defense options that may lead to a reduction or dismissal of the charges. In cases that go to trial, they can present a zealous defense.
Any South Carolina person who is informed that he or she is named in an alleged crime of bank fraud may want to consult with Chris Wellborn before discussing the matter with anyone else. He will provide advice on how to protect your legal rights throughout the proceedings. Bank fraud charges are serious and deserve skilled defense representation.
