For the strongest possible defense, choose Perlmutter & Pourshalimi as your check fraud lawyer
The crime of check fraud involves altering, making, or using a check with the intent to defraud someone. Common examples include creating fake checks, forging the name of the payor, or changing the amount on the check. Paying with a check that you know will bounce is a specific type of check fraud that is covered under California’s Bad Checks law.
Depending on the amount of money involved in the alleged fraud, you could face misdemeanor or felony charges and severe penalties. And of course, getting any kind of criminal conviction on your record will create the potential for future hardship. You need to fight the charges against you aggressively with help from a skilled check fraud defense lawyer like Perlmutter & Pourshalimi.
Possible Check Fraud Defenses
As your check fraud defense attorney, we will thoroughly investigate the facts of your case and explore every possible option for your defense. As former prosecutors ourselves, we know how difficult it is for prosecutors to prove all of the necessary elements to secure a conviction for check fraud, and we know how best to undermine their efforts.
One particularly fruitful defense for check fraud is lack of fraudulent intent. Even if you did possess a forged check, you aren’t guilty of a crime unless the prosecution can also prove you knew it was fake and intended to use it to defraud someone.
