  • Computer fraud: The use of a computer to commit any type of fraud will result in a computer fraud charge.
  • Credit card fraud: Using another's credit card number without his or her permission will result in a credit card fraud charge.
  • Bad checks: Bad checks arise when you attempt to write a check on someone else's account or draft a check with insufficient funds to cover your purchase.
  • Forgery: Creating false documents or signing another's signature for your own personal gain can result in forgery charges.
  • Tax evasion or tax fraud: Failing to report income or in other ways lying to the IRS can result in tax evasion or tax fraud charges.
  • Bank fraud: Bank fraud occurs when you illegally gain possession of money through a financial institution. It can also arise when you pretend to be a financial institution in order to gain other people's money.
  • Counterfeiting: Manufacturing a "fake" product and selling it under a recognized brand name is counterfeiting.
