Criminal Fraud

While similar in some cases, civil fraud and criminal fraud are two different types of cases. Life theft, fraud charges fall into two categories: fraud under $5000 and fraud over $5000. 

The punishment for those found guilty of fraud under $5000 is up to two years in prison if not an indictable offence. 

Fraud over $5000 is an indictable offence and so the punishment for those found guilty is 14 years’ jail time. 

Fraud is considered a “property offence,” as well as a crime of dishonesty; because of this, it is treated more seriously by the court. If convicted, it will affect all aspects of personal life – work, immigration status, and overall freedom. 

However, to prove the occurrence of fraud, the prosecutor will have to look for a paper trail and rely on any witnesses, which is evidence that can be questioned by a practiced lawyer.
